Wearable and meshed wideband monopole antennas and their interactions with the human body

This study considers a wideband monopole antenna and its interactions with different separations from the human body phantom over a wide frequency. A meshed alternative version has also been developed which has similar performance to the circular wideband monopole antenna but requires less material. The specific absorption rate and efficiency of this antenna have been analysed as a function of separation distance and frequency. The mesh design has been fabricated by using embroidery and 3D printing techniques.
