Abstract

Body-mounted antennas are used in biotelemetry and walkie-talkies. Biotelemetry transmitters are applied to human test subjects and animals in order to record physiological and other data with minimum encumbrance for the test subject. Nowadays, the devices designed to monitor physiological data from the human body have great promises to provide major contributions to disease prevention, diagnosis, and therapy. This project is focused on the study of the antenna parameters and the radiation effect in the human arm model produced by the surface mounted on body microstrip flexible patch antenna. This microstrip patch antenna is flexible and suitable for wearable applications. The special feature of this antenna is it is flexible and can attach to any part of human arm body which operates at 402 - 405 MHz MICS (Medical Implant Communication Service) on the optimization of the chosen surface mounted on body antenna for bandwidth, return loss, radiation which shows the efficiency of the proposed antenna. This flexible microstrip patch antenna is measured on skin surfaces as a part of the human arm model which are presented in this paper. There are two conditions of observation which are an antenna in free space condition and attach to human arm model condition. Both conditions were analyzed, in term of antenna performance such as frequency, return loss, realized gain, directivity, and efficiency. After that, the simulation is carried out in the proximity of human arm model which commensurate with the antenna field region and the size of antenna's reactive near-field that is satisfied to be an important factor in the evaluation of an acceptable in body operation. Therefore, those parameters are satisfied. Its radiation characteristics, return loss, gain, polarization has been examined which are the issues when it is use in free space and on body surface for medical purpose. One of the advantages of these characteristics is once the antenna is flexible and bends in any condition on human body then the specific absorption rate can be reduced.
