Footwear Antennas for Body Area Telemetry
Gaetano, Domenico; McEvoy, Patrick; Ammann, Max; Browne, Jacinta; Keating, Louise; Horgan, Frances
Antennas designed to link footwear sensors within body centric networks are introduced with two small UWB antennas, one directional and another quasi-omnidirectional. The radiating characteristics are evaluated for three positions on a sample sports shoe using a detailed simulation model and measurements with a homogenous foot phantom. Antenna performance is assessed for resilience to close proximity loading by the footwear materials and the phantom foot.
