The degradation of an adequate medical facilities for safety and healthy human atmosphere motivated researchers to think more generously to provide a smart solution in medical applications. Wireless body area network (WBAN) is one of the potential platform to cope up to the needs of prevailing medical demands and challenges. In the literature, WBAN is a femto-network (ranges up to few meters) formation around a human body for sensing, transmission and reception functionality. These functionalities are executed using various modes by placement of sensors node on human posture or by injecting inside of the human body. This mode of communication have various challenges when deployed in medical applications. Due to the critical nature of human physiological sensed data which demands a reliable and secure transmission, reception between sensors, intermediate and master node. This article outcomes are two fold, first is the state of art challenges of WBAN and the need of the ultimate smart solution for safe and reliable communication in Wireless body area Networks. Secondly, using Cooperation techniques for mitigation of WBAN issues, proposed cooperative model is presented for reliable data transmission using an efficient network resource utilization mechanism.
