Abstract:A Body Area Network (BAN) is a body worn system which provides the user with a set of mobile services. A BAN incorporates a set of devices (eg. mp3 player, video camera, speakers, microphone, head-up display, positioning device, sensors, actuators). A BAN service platform for mobile healthcare and several health BANs targetting different clinical applications have been devel-oped at the University of Twente. Each specialization of the BAN is equipped with a certain set of devices and associated application components, as appro-priate to the clinical application. Different kinds of clinical data may be cap-tured, transmitted and displayed, including text, numeric values, images and multiple biosignal streams. Timely processing and transmission of such multi-media clinical data in a distributed mobile environment requires smart strate-gies. Here we present one approach to designing smart distributed applications to deal with multimedia BAN data; namely the context awareness approach de-veloped in the FREEBAND AWARENESS project.
