Wearable computing continues to attract researchers' interests. In particular, the combination of biomedical applications and sensor networks has been in major focus, especially in the field of real-time health care monitoring. Various connection mediums have been proposed for such platforms. This includes wired and wireless communication schemes. The inconvenience of interconnecting sensors through wires, however, not only induces high maintenance costs, but also may limits the freedom of human activity. Utilizing wireless biosensors nodes removes such unnatural wire constraints. Yet, employing wireless sensors in the close proximity to the human body may introduce a new set of limitations. The goal of this work is to study how the human body affects the quality of the wireless links between nodes.
