Due to the increased demand for an effective communication technology in the health care sector, a wireless network is needed that effectively monitors the patient's vital sign and send reports concurrently to the remote system. This increases the comfort level of monitoring the patients continuously. The main idea of this article work is to build up a WBAN that endlessly monitors human healthiness parameters and reports information to the nearby PC/sinks. The small wearable devices which is

They self-configure to endlessly monitor critical signs such as heart beat, core temperature etc. The energy efficiency and transmission delay is analyzed by using Cooja simulator. Finally the design is implemented in the Telosb wireless sensor motes.
