Executive Summary

Rapid advance in science and technology are paving the way for improvement of human life. It, in turn, will change the way in which the authors think about medicine, sports and entertainment and how they experience them. Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) are networks whose nodes are usually placed close to the body on or in clothing everyday. A WBAN topology comprises a series of miniature sensor/actuator nodes, each of which is able to communicate with other sensor nodes or with a central node worn on the body. The central node communicates with the outside world by using a standard telecommunication infrastructure, such as wireless local area and cellular phone networks, and is with the higher computation capability.
