© 2017 IEEE. Wireless body area network is a climbing innovation in machine world and assumes an exceptionally lively part in general public. By using this technology, medical specialists can check complete subtle elements of a patient from a remote area and can prescribe a suitable solution. The primary motivation behind this innovation is to decrease the work load at doctor's facilities and give proficient medical services. For this purpose, different body sensors are used to monitor the physical parameters such as electro-cardiogram, heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature of patients, and use wireless sensor network (WSN) in conjunction with internet of things (IoT) to continuously monitor the patient condition. Health parameters data is also sent to the medical personnel with the help of wireless technology module such as a Zigbee (S2 module) and internet cloud computing. The proposed system is not only economically viable but also offers enough portability to be used in remote under-privileged areas for better health facilities.
