Abstract : Wearable antennas are integral part of body area networks (BANs). Antenna design for BAN applications is a challenging task since the antennas have to he small. efficient, and must not be affected by the wearer's body. This makes isolation of antenna a matter of importance. Ferrites form an opaque media for microwave at the 2.4-GHz ISM band and hence it could be used for the isolation of antenna from surroundings. Thin polymeric ferrite sheets are used to reduce body, influence in BAN perspective.
