Diminishing SAR for Wearable UHF Antennas

  title={Diminishing SAR for Wearable UHF Antennas},
  author={Jovanche Trajkovikj and Anja K. Skrivervik},
  journal={IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters},
This letter presents a study on the specific absorption rate (SAR) evaluation of UHF wearable antennas. A planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) intended to operate in wireless body area networks (WBANs) is taken as an example for the investigation. The presence of the ground plane introduces isolation between the body and the wearable antenna and decouples the antenna from the body, thus resulting in lower SAR values. The performed analysis of the proposed PIFA indicates increased near-field regions… CONTINUE READING
