Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) is a new wireless communications technology designed to sense human’s vital signals through tiny nodes in, on and around the human body wirelessly. MBAN will play an important role in enabling ubiquitous and noninvasive telemetry and healthcare systems in the future. In this paper, we analyze the interference in MBAN both from legacy wireless networks and neighbouring MBANs. We then study the possible solutions to fight against these interferences in MBAN including the channel sharing scheme to solve the inter-network interference. Experiments are carried out based on MQWIN400 radio platform to studythe wireless channel in 400MHz band. We found the receiver’s mobility makes the channel quite dynamic because of multipath effect.
