In this paper, the utilization of ultra wideband (UWB) technology is reviewed for medical wireless ICT applications. As a low power technique, UWB is capable to operate in underlay fashion with other existing radio and medical systems. At hospital site, this is one of the major requirements set to the electrical devices. UWB makes it possible to utilize both high and low data rate applications and accurate positioning.
