Abstract: On-body wave propagation is investigated for medical frequency bands at 433 MHz and 915 MHz. The paper applies in-situ measurements, full wave numerical simulations, and simplified ground wave and creeping wave theories to calculate the approximate path gain, both along and around a human body. A compact array design, which can be used for potential on-body applications, is also simulated and measured.
