Body area networks (BANs) are the localized wireless networks, which can serve a wide range of medical purposes; ranging from tracking vital signs to monitoring the working of implants. These devices also perform advanced endoscopic exams. Conventional methods of patient monitoring include the connection of physiological sensors between the patients body and a dedicated signal processing unit that is placed nearby through unwieldy wires. These wires, apparently, restrict the mobility and comfort of patients. Several studies suggest that these can also lead to in-hospital infections. Furthermore, motion artifacts from the connected wires can affect the measured results negatively.
