A practical implementation of the Body Area Network (BAN) concept is presented. It consists of a 3-channel ECG-foil and a plethysmographysensor at this stage. The ECG is continuously derived by that system. Additional sensors can also work continuously or periodically resp. event-driven. The flash memory mounted on the ECG-foil allows recording the data over max. 24 hours. All sensors communicate to each other and with the BAN`s base station via Bluetooth. The base station is located at doctor`s practice or in the accommodation of the patient. The system supports TeleHomeCare applications for that reason.
