Body Area Networks (BAN) is an emerging technology that has the potential to revolutionize next-generation healthcare, entertainment, and other personal applications. BAN, compared to other personal-area network solutions, targets a unique region of the power vs. data rate trade- off that makes novel personal applications possible (Figure 11).
