The main objective of this study is to test in vivo a small-size dual-band implantable antenna operating in Medical Implant Communications Service (MICS) (402405 MHz) and Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) (2.42.48 GHz) bands and to investigate the effects of live tissue on the antenna performance. To do so, we have designed and fabricated three identical antennas that were surgically implanted into rats at Mississippi State University's (MSU) College of Veterinary Medicine.
