ABSTRACT
This paper described design and architecture of our own innovative work about the Mobility Management in Wireless Body Area Network for Patient Monitoring System. This system will have the capability to monitor physiological parameters from multiple patient bodies. The system uses the Licence free MICS band between the sensor nodes and a remote central control unit (CCU) that behaves as a base station. The CCU communicates through the internet or a mobile network for a long distance data transfer. The proposed system offers mobility to patients and flexibility to Doctor & medical staff to obtain patient's physiological data on continuous basis via Internet or Mobile. The collected data is transferred to remote stations with a multi-hopping technique using the medical gateway. The gateway nodes connect the sensor nodes to the local area network and the internet. Medical professions can access patients' physiological signals anywhere in the medical centre or the data can also be accessed outside the medical centre.
