Exploring Body to Body Communication Using Health Monitor Application

D. S. Gokilamani, V. T. Ganga


The paper presents a Advanced technology of communication method called as body to body communication in biomedical field Human body is used as a medium of transmission of data [5].The use of this technology in medical monitoring systems eliminates the complexity of existing technologies that involves cables wires for transmission of data. The proposed model provides a secure and simple communication system that consists of wearable devices to measure heart beat and temperature and hence transmits the data from patient to the master doctor in real time and used to maintaining the patient health report simultaneously. The model, wearable on wrist or any other part of the body has an integrated processor ARM7 Thus the proposed methodology of using human body [3] the security of transmitted signals as compared to the other wireless technologies.
