Evaluation of IR-UWB BAN for certification based on regulatory science

Keiko Sameshima, Ryuji Kohno

Abstract

Recently, information and communication technology has been attracting attention in medical field. Among them, BAN(Body Area Network) becomes important because it is suitable for the watch of medical information. However, certification of BAN takes a lot of time in Japan because it must be approved with both of the Radio Act and Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Act(PMD Act). Therefore, we propose a new criterion specialized for the wireless medical devices to realize more efficient certification system. In this paper, we evaluated invasiveness to human body when utilizing IR(impulse radio)-UWB(ultra wideband) BAN in burst mode defined in IEEE802.15.6 under Japanese regulations. Then, we considered its risks and benefits based on regulatory science by finding an optimized condition.
