Abstract: With the ever decreasing size/miniaturization of electronic devices, lower power consumption and these electronic devices becoming less expensive, the idea (once a prophecy) of a full-fledged Body Area Network (BAN) is becoming a reality. The basic idea behind Body Area Networking or BAN  is that electronic devices like sensors, processors; Networking devices like switches, routers and connectivity devices like Bluetooth module, Wi-Fi module etc… are placed at the nodes of the human body. Certain wireless protocols and routing protocols are used to wirelessly inter connect these nodes and choose the optimum route for packet data transfer between them respectively. The ability to share data increases the usefulness of intra-body embedded personal information devices , providing features not possible with independent isolated devices. In this paper we are using 3 sensors- Heartbeat sensors, body temperature sensor and pressure sensors. These sensors actively measure the real time biological parameters of a human body and the information is exchanged between these sensors at the node using wireless connectivity like Bluetooth. The information flow or traffic flow is regulated and proper route selection process is carried out using dynamic routing protocol like OSPF. The output of these devices is monitored using smartphone installed with third party android application.
