Abstract

The rise in population aging witnesses the widespread attention towards the healthcare also by means of efficient and non invasive healthcare monitoring platforms. Intra Body Area Networks (I-BANs) are envisaged as the tool to implement this platform and will exploit the human body as the transmission medium, causing undesirable overheating of tissues and organs crossed by electromagnetic signals carrying information. To cope with this issue, at the physical level, it has been recently proposed to use ultrasonic waves for I-BAN applications [1-4] both to improve the transmission performance constrained in case of RF waves by the composition of the body (more than 65% composed of water, a mean through which electromagnetic waves scarcely propagate leading to very high attenuation) and for the purpose of avoiding temperature rise in proximity of organic tissues.
