The physical channels establishing intrabody communications were first treated as capacitive circuits by Zimmerman. In Zimmerman's model, the human body is approximated as a perfect conductor. The equivalent-circuit parameters of the perfect conductor models can be strictly obtained based on electrostatic analyses; however, the perfect conductor models cannot be applied if conduction currents inside the human body are not negligible. In the present paper, a theory of the equivalent circuit for… CONTINUE READING
