Maintaining health is very important now days with emergence a lots of new virus that can affect health. There is a lots of body sensor or biosensor used to detect health condition of person such as electrocardiogram (ECG) used to monitor heart activity, electromyogram (EEG) used to monitor brain activity, blood pressure sensor and etc. Body sensor network (BSN) is a set of body sensors that might consist of a few sensors to monitor a health of the user, process the data and send the data to the caretaker or for own health monitoring. A lot is researchers has develop a BSN with different approach such as MobiHealth is develop from researchers in University of Twente Enshchede , Nederlands [1], there is also a Personal Health Monitoring (PHM) which is develop by researchers in UTS Sydney Australia. Researchers from China develop a BSN for purpose of in-home health monitoring [2]. While the researchers from Morocco are develop a wireless body sensor network (WBSN) design to provide patient surveillance [3].
