RedTacton is a Human Area Networking technology that uses the surface of the human body for transmitting the information at a high speed. It is completely distinct from wireless and infrared technologies as it uses the minute electric field emitted on the surface of the human body. A transmission path is created when human body comes in contact with a RedTacton  transceiver. Communication is possible using any body surfaces, such as the hands, fingers, arms, feet, face, legs or torso. RedTacton works through shoes and clothing as well. When the human body is not in contact with the transceiver the communication will be terminated. Human body communication (HBC) provides a promising physical layer for wireless body area networks (BANs) in healthcare and medical applications because of its low propagation loss and high security characteristics. In this project, we propose to monitor the patients health monitoring in a hospital. No external devices like Bluetooth, LAN, RF, Zigbee, Wires are used for transmitting the data. Thus reducing the capital or investment cost.
