Body area network (BAN) and wireless BAN (WBAN) systems lack a unique description model for the identification of all the components and the features that characterize them. This results in a disadvantage since a formalization tool would favor standardization and would seriously help in the implementation of building systems. In this paper we successfully used the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to describe a WBAN which measures hand joint movements, and we demonstrated how UML can be successfully adopted to design a model for the description of such networks.
