This study aims how to contain the environment reflection in a dynamic on-body ultra wideband (UWB) channel model. Based on a measurement approach, it is demonstrated that a complete body area channel model can be regarded as a combination of the on-body propagation characteristic and additional components from the environment. Based on such a channel model, the effect of environment reflection on the average bit error rate performance was investigated for a typical impulse radio UWB system.
