Abstract

This paper presents an unaccustomed mechanism for health care monitoring system that is wirelessly implemented. Intra-body communication is a promising wireless communication technology that uses human body as the transmission medium and thereby making it private, lower power consuming and more immune to risks from wired devices. This cable-free technology is added as a new physical layer with the IEEE standard 802.15.6. Nowadays portable devices everywhere make a revolutionary change. The proposed system is also implemented in the form a wearable device that can able to measure heartbeat, temperature and blood pressure.
