An elliptical analytic link loss model for wireless propagation around the human torso

Chandra, Rohit LU and Johansson, Anders J LU (2012) 6th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, 2012 In 6th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP), 2012 p.3121-3124
Abstract
A simple analytical model for the link loss between two very low profile wireless body area network transceivers located at the same level on the human torso is presented. The model is based on the attenuation of the creeping waves on an elliptical approximation of the human torso. A good agreement between the model and the FDTD simulations on realistic heterogeneous phantoms of different age and body-size is obtained.
