Advancement in the wireless communication technologies, the Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) is the one of the most important networks in the healthcare applications. There are several advantages such as flexibility, efficiency and cost-effeteness of BAN system. In the BAN system sensors are implantable and wearable. In this paper, an overview of the 3-tier architecture of the BAN system explained. The design parameters and mathematical equations are explained to calculate the dimensions of a microstrip rectangular patch antenna on flexible denim substrate. The Gain, Return Loss, Directivity and Efficiency are simulated at two different frequencies and compared their performance.
