The miniaturization of electronic devices and the research of wireless network have provided considerable advances in Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) which motivates new solutions in energy efficiency and reliability in delivery of packets. This work aims at the improvement of a transmission power control developed with a cross-layer approach to ensure reliability in the delivery of packets. The results from the simulations have shown an increase in the rate of sent packets, which ensures more reliability in the studied scenarios.
