    Miniature Implantable Antennas for Biomedical Telemetry: from Simulation to Realization

    Export to Mendeley

    We address numerical versus experimental design and testing of miniature implantable antennas for biomedical telemetry in the medical implant communications service (MICS) band (402405 MHz). A model of a novel miniature antenna is initially proposed for skinimplantation, which includes varying parameters to deal with fabricationspecific details. An iterative designandtesting methodology is further suggested to determine the parameter values which minimize deviations between numerical and experimental results. To assist invitro testing, a lowcost technique is proposed for reliably measuring the electric properties of liquids without requiring commercial equipment. Validation is performed within a specific prototype fabrication/testing approach for miniature antennas. To speedup design while providing an antenna for generic skinimplantation, investigations are performed inside a canonical skintissue model. Resonance, radiation and safety performance of the proposed antenna is finally evaluated inside an anatomical head model. The study provides valuable insight into the design of implantable antennas, assessing the significance of fabricationspecific details in numerical simulations and uncertainties in experimental testing for miniature structures. The proposed methodology can be applied to optimize antennas for several fabrication/testing approaches and biotelemetry applications.

    Description

    Title : Miniature Implantable Antennas for Biomedical Telemetry: from Simulation to Realization
    Author(s) : Jorge Costa
    Abstract : We address numerical versus experimental design and testing of miniature implantable antennas for biomedical telemetry in the medical implant communications service (MICS) band (402405 MHz). A model of a novel miniature antenna is initially proposed for skinimplantation, which includes varying parameters to deal with fabricationspecific details. An iterative designandtesting methodology is further suggested to determine the parameter values which minimize deviations between numerical and experimental results. To assist invitro testing, a lowcost technique is proposed for reliably measuring the electric properties of liquids without requiring commercial equipment. Validation is performed within a specific prototype fabrication/testing approach for miniature antennas. To speedup design while providing an antenna for generic skinimplantation, investigations are performed inside a canonical skintissue model. Resonance, radiation and safety performance of the proposed antenna is finally evaluated inside an anatomical head model. The study provides valuable insight into the design of implantable antennas, assessing the significance of fabricationspecific details in numerical simulations and uncertainties in experimental testing for miniature structures. The proposed methodology can be applied to optimize antennas for several fabrication/testing approaches and biotelemetry applications.
