Description In today's age of technological innovation, the rehabilitation and sports fields are evolving by integrating tools that allow the human body to interface with electronics to provide precious data. In particular, motion analysis using Inertial Measure Units (IMUs) and surface ElectroMyoGraphic (sEMG) signal acquisition devices covers a key role in these two fields. Indeed, the MiNES research group in recent years has developed low-power devices for muscle activity monitoring, and has recently begun to integrate their functionalities with inertial sensors. The purpose of this thesis work is the design of a wireless communication protocol based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to obtain a Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) that allows synergistic use of the devices developed by the research group. Problems to be addressed will include defining the network topology, synchronization of the involved devices, alternating master and slave roles, and limiting the amount of payload transmitted by the network.
