FCC designates broadband frequency for Medical Body Area Networks | Government Health IT

An MBAN (Medical Body Area Networks) is defined as a “low power network of sensors worn on the body controlled by a hub device that is located either on the body or in close proximity to it.”

Such devices operate on a secondary basis in that spectrum, and “must not cause harmful interference to and must accept interference from federal and non-federal stations operating in the band in accordance with the Table of Frequency Allocations.”

Currently, that range of spectrum is used by aeronautical mobile telemetry (AMT).
