Imec Netherlands has demonstrated a new type of wireless body area network (BAN). The Human++ BAN platform converts Imec's ultra-low-power electrocardiogram sensors into wireless nodes in a short-range network, transmitting physiological data to a hub (the patient's cellphone). From there, the readings can be forwarded to doctors via a Wi-Fi or 3G connection.
