The evolvement of wireless technologies has enabled revolutionizing the health-care industry by monitor patient health condition requiring early diagnosis and interfering when a chronic situation is taking place. In this regard, miniaturized biosensors have been manufactured to cover various medical applications forming therefore a Wireless Body Sensor Network (WBSN). A WBSN is comprised of several small and low power devices capable of sensing vital signs such as heart rate, blood glucose, body temperature etc.. Although WBSN main purpose is to provide the most convenient wireless setting for the networking of human body sensors, there are still a great number of technical challenges to resolve such as: power source miniaturization, low power transceivers, biocompatibility, secure data transfer, minimum transmission delay and high quality of service. These challenges have to be taken into consideration when creating a new routing protocol for WBSNs. This paper proposes a new Relay based Thermal aware and Mobile Routing Protocol (RTM-RP) for Wireless Body Sensor Networks tackling the problem of high energy consumption and high temperature increase where the mobility is a crucial constraint to handle.
