Abstract: The  Wireless  Body  Area  Network  (WBAN)  emerges  into  the  mainstream  of  the  medical  implant communication  services,  where  sets of  sensors and actuators are embedded/attached to  the human body  in  order  to  provide  various  services.  These  services  include  continuous  & remote health  monitoring  with real-time  updates  of  medical  records,  computer  assisted  rehabilitation,  early  detection  of  medical conditions,  artificial  immune  system  creation,  or  paralyzed  muscle  stimulation.  The embedded/attached  sets  of  sensors  and  actuators  in  the  human  body  are  designed  and  configured such that they collect the desired physiological data related to this individual without regard to the time and location, and whether the body is moving or still.
The new field of Wireless Body Area Networks WBAN requires a high level of security, privacy and reliability to make them viable. Moreover, in order to improve the system lifetime, it is essential to ensure that the communication between the mounted sensor/actuator nodes, wearable relay nodes and sink/controller node takes place in the right way. In WBAN, the dynamic nature of the human body, complexity of the human  tissues  structure  and  body shape give variation to the traditional radio channel making difficult the design and the development of lightweight and context-aware communication protocols  that  are  able  to  reduce  energy  consumption, and packet loss rate while achieving a reasonable/acceptable trade-off between reliability, cost and efficiency. Therefore, this talk will give an overview of Wireless BAN challenges and solutions in designing energy efficient and secure Wireless Body Area Networks for remote healthcare monitoring services.
