In 2010, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) issued its first national broadband plan, which included a proposal for a “medical body area network” (MBAN). Specific frequencies would be assigned for medical wireless monitoring. In May, 2012, FCC issued proposed rules for these MBAN systems, providing a platform for wirelessly networking patient sensors. After initially raising concerns about radio interference, the Aerospace and Flight Test Radio Coordinating Counsel (AFTRCC) appears now to be collaborating with health institutions to allow spectrum allocation for MBANs, an important and positive development.
The FCC approved the use of medical micropower networks (MMNs) in four blocks of the 400MHz spectrum to treat paralysis and other conditions, despite opposition from TV and radio broadcasters
