Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) and Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) technologies have become promising options for wireless medical applications. However, increased body loss at the ISM frequencies utilized in a BLE communication system and common interference sources, including Wi-Fi, IoT, wireless power charging, microwave-ovens, etc. present challenges for medical applications. MBAN frequencies are also quite close to the ISM frequency band. In this seminar, both BLE medical system & MBAN system analysis will be presented. System and interference testing will be discussed. User-hand effects on the system performance and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) will also be examined. The seminar will include material presented on BLE & MBAN Communication Systems for Implants and Body-worn Devices at the FDA.
