RF Challenges and Opportunities for Mobile Health
The aims of this session are to assess the latest advances in antennas and RF communications for wearable and implanted antennas. This session includes 7 Invited talks from international experts. The talks concern wearable antennas and how the propagation of the signals around the body can be optimised. This is important as it allows medical sensors to communicate with mobile phones or local base stations. Another key topic concerns the RF implications of inserting medical devices inside the human body. RF can also be used not just from a communication point of view but from imaging applications to measure the blood glucose levels.
