Investigation and Design of a Multi-band Wearable Antenna

In this paper, wearable antennas in close proximity of a human body are considered, focusing on portions of the frequency range between 200 MHz and 2700 MHz. In specific, non-patch type antennas with multi-band operation, light weight, easy integration with garment, low obstruction and impedances are studied. To simulate the investigated structures, an efficient surface integral equation based method is used. Several antennas are investigated under different configurations relative to the body considering the effect of the body, bending, multi-band operation, as well as fabrication and packaging options.
