Wireless body area network are expected to be a breakthrough technology in healthcare areas such as hospital and telemedicine. The human body has a complex shape consisting of different tissues. It is expected that the nature of propagation of electromagnetic signals in the case of WBAN to be very different than the one found in other environment. Here we are going to expand the knowledge of IEEE 802.15.3a UWB channel by taking measurement of parameters in frequency range from 3-6GHz and transmitting to remote monitor with high data rate up to 480Mbps by using MB-OFDM and increasing the throughput with power efficiency.
