In the design and synthesis of wearable antennas isolation distance from the body is a critical parameter. This paper deals with the comparison of perturbations caused to the matching of simple linear and circular polarized patch antennas due to the close proximity of a human torso and rectangular box and cylindrical phantoms filled with muscle simulating liquid at 1.8GHz. The isolated variable is return loss, S11(dB). Results show that at these frequencies a cylindrical phantom resembles the body more closely than a rectangular phantom.
