    Abstract

    An analytical model for across the body surface communication systems is presented. The paper is focused on the calculation of the approximate path gain, both along and around planar and cylindrical geometries, representative of the human body for antennas polarized normal to the body surface. The model is validated at 2.45 GHz using finite-difference timedomain numerical analysis and in-situ measurements on an adult-male test subject.
