Wearable Antennas for Communication and Medical Applications

6.1 Introduction

Communication and biomedical industry is in continuous growth in the last few years. Low-profile compact antennas are crucial in the development of wearable human communication and biomedical systems. The proposed antennas may be linearly or dually polarized. Design considerations, computational results, and measured results on the human body of several compact wideband microstrip antennas with high efficiency at 434 MHz ± 5% are presented in this chapter. The compact dually polarized antenna dimensions are 5 × 5 × 0.05 cm. The antenna beam width is around 100°. The antenna gain is around 0–4 dBi. The proposed antenna may be used in communication and Medicare ...
