Abstract: In the design and synthesis of wearable antennas isolation distance from the body is a critical parameter. This paper deals with the comparison of perturbations caused to the matching of simple linear and circular polarized patch antennas due to the close proximity of a human torso and rectangular box phantom filled with muscle simulating liquid at 1.8GHz. The isolated variable is return loss (S11). Results show that both linear and circularly polarized antennas produce an optimal return loss closer to the surface of a typical phantom than the back of a human volunteer.
