Evaluation of a broadband textile monopole antenna performance for subject-specific on-body applications
The human body characteristics with different dimensions and tissue properties are one of the major factors in influencing the on-body radio propagation channel characteristics. A broadband textile monopole antenna operating at 2.45 GHz is evaluated to validate its performance on different subjects’ characteristics. The results show that the textile monopole antenna is sufficiently robust against the variations introduced by the body up to 0.9 and 0.2% changes in the antenna’s impedance matching level and resonant frequency shift when evaluated 10 mm from the body.
