Article: Updates to the Development of Medical Body Area Networks (MBANS)

Mobihealth News has published an article indicating that Philips is interested in a 10MHz spectrum dedicated to MBANS.  Here's the link to the article:

Mobihealth suggests that Philips is taking a different approach to MBANs than GE who wants 40Mhz of spectrum dedicated to MBANs.  The GE is interested in MBANs that would be used in hospitals.  Philips is interested in the deployment of MBANs to the field, and that Philips would produce consumer and not medical grade products.  I am not sure how this could work in the US.  However, this development is worth continuing attention.
