Experimental characterization of in vivo radio channel at MICS and ISM Bands Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper presents an experimental study for the propagation losses and wave attenuation inside human body for implanted antenna at different body organs. The experimental study discusses the commonly used frequency bands: 402-405 MHz MICS (Medical Implant Communication Service) band, and the industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) band frequency at 915 MHz. The path loss is calculated for different positions of implant at different organs i.e., heart, stomach, and intestine. In addition, the effect of frequency change is discussed and analyzed.
