Body Area Networks (BAN)


Wireless communications surrounding from inside the human body are envisioned to improve healthcare and wellbeing. However, signal transmission considering the human body is challenging due to the unique characteristics of human tissues. In this context, the MCG is focused on the research of wireless communications from implanted devices (pacemaker or capsule endoscope…). Moreover, the MCG also develops new electromagnetic models of human tissues, also known as phantoms, that allows a fast an easy development and testing of wireless devices operating inside the human body with an important reduction of animal experimentation.
