5G wireless is the next step in the evolution of mobile communications with the aim being to provide connectivity for any kind of device and any kind of application. Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) constitute just one component of connected healthcare utilising small intelligent physiological sensors either on or implanted in the human body. This contribution examines the 5G technologies that will make a significant contribution to providing secure healthcare-orientated WBANs with improved energy efficiency, interference mitigation and wireless power transfer capability.
