ABSTRACT: In this paper, Design and Implementation of Wireless Body Area Network for Rural Health Care (WBANRHC) Based Health Monitoring System (HMS) is presented. In the era of miniature and wearable gadgets monitoring of health parameters for patient with medical warning is essential. These health parameters are then communicated to physician’s server Room. The physician set various threshold values for the health parameters to caution the patient .A BAN, consisting of two nodes and a base station was successfully built and tested using open source and inexpensive hardware to measure pulse rate, body temperature, and patient’s location. Each node consisted of a pulse sensor, a temperature sensor, a GSM module Camera and a RF Trans-receiver Module.
