Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 53, 99-110, 2017
Abstract
In this paper, a novel multiband wearable fractal antenna which suitable for GPS, WiMax and WiFi (Bluetooth) applications is presented. This antenna is designed to operate at four resonance frequencies are 1.57, 2.7, 3.4 and 5.3 GHz. The proposed wearable antenna may be attached to human body, so the specific absorption ratio (SAR) must be calculated. Therefore, another design to reduce SAR value with a spiral metamaterial meandered in the ground plane is introduced. In addition, a wearable fractal antenna system integrated on a life jacket is also presented.
