A Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consists basically of a group of nodes, that communicate with each other through a wireless transmission, and does not need any existing infrastructure. The recent developments in technology and wireless communication, to be used in various applications, foster the development of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). They are emerging as important networks in order to reduce the need for patients, and to help the elderly and chronically ill people to live an independent life. In this paper, we propose a routing protocol for wireless body area networks, to transfer data in the network with minimum energy consumption, and longer network lifetime through multi-hop communication. The proposed protocol has been verified by performing simulations, and the obtained results show that our routing protocol ensures a robust optimisation of the energy consumption which helps to increase the lifetime of the network and its stability.
