About the Authors
  • Body area networks (BANs) are networks of wireless sensors and medical devices embedded in clothing, worn on or implanted in the body, and have the potential to revolutionize healthcare by enabling pervasive healthcare. However, due to their critical applications affecting human health, challenges arise when designing them to ensure they are safe for the user, sustainable without requiring frequent battery replacements and secure from interference and malicious attacks. This book lays the foundations of how BANs can be redesigned from a cyber-physical systems perspective (CPS) to overcome these issues. Introducing cutting-edge theoretical and practical techniques and taking into account the unique environment-coupled characteristics of BANs, the book examines how we can re-imagine the design of safe, secure and sustainable BANs. It features real-world case studies, suggestions for further investigation and project ideas, making it invaluable for anyone involved in pervasive and mobile healthcare, telemedicine, medical apps and other cyber-physical systems.

    • Provides a model for environment-coupled nature of body area networks, enabling the design of efficient BANs that are more attuned to their context of deployment
    • Includes implemented case studies, enabling you to benefit from others' real-life experience
    • Features a glossary of important terms, making the book accessible for readers from different disciplines
    • Includes questions for further investigation and project ideas, helping to integrate the book in both undergraduate and graduate level courses
