OBJECTIVE To study the effect and impact from electromagnetic field radiation and specific absorption rate (SAR) on the human body. MATERIAL AND METHOD The present study describes a quasi-experimental research. The implanted antenna embedded to the medical device such as the cardiac pacemaker was designed in the human phantom using finite-difference time-domain method. The skin mimicking gels were developed as the tissue stimulant to realistically represent the human body. RESULTS The dual… CONTINUE READING
