Wireless body area network has received a lot of attention in the medical monitoring domain because of its wireless convenience. Considering the safety of user, the energy saving of WBAN devices, the signals occlusion from human body and the effects of human mobility on the connection between sensors, efficient and secure communication is still a challenge for intra WBAN communication. In this talk, we will present the basic model of the WBAN system we studied and its performance analysis. From that, we propose a Continuous-time Markov chain based model representing the broadcast communication in WBAN. This model allow us compute varying kinds of performances of WBAN system. In addition, we expand WBAN system to a theoretical model, and we studied efficient broadcasting with the help of Labelling scheme.
