Implantable Antenna for Blood Glucose Monitoring
In this paper, a miniaturized implantable antenna for ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) band 2.4–2.4835 GHz has been proposed. The designed antenna can be used for biomedical application called blood glucose monitoring system. The proposed antenna will be placed under the skin tissue. To make the antenna biocompatible, it is coated with the PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) biocompatible layer. The designed antenna is tested for single-layer skin tissue as well as multilayer muscle and skin tissue.
