  • ABSTRACT: Technology development in the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has paved the way for body area network for remote health monitoring. For this purpose, a message or a data packet should be transmitted from the patient to the medical evaluator without any loss. In this work, Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) algorithm is implemented for Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) to deliver the message, based on the criticality of the pa- tient. Finally, we compare the results for both the real-time data and the simulated (random) values in terms of packet-size forwarding for different parameters such as Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), Delay and Throughput. The result shows better performance in the real time value by using TOPSIS scheme in the WBAN. By improving the quality of service in body area networks, health monitoring system can be automated with good performance.
