Title
(EN) COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM AND METHOD USING A PART OF HUMAN BODY AS AN ANTENNA IN A BODY AREA NETWORK
Abstract
(EN)

There is provided a communications system and method using a part of human body as an antenna in a body area network, and more particularly, to a communications system and method enabling wireless communications using a low frequency band without the use of a bulky antenna in such a manner that a transmitting-side communications device applies electrical signals to a human body via a transmitting-side coupler to allow a part of human body to act as an antenna, and electrical signals, occurring in another part of human body due to radio frequency (RF) signals, are transferred to a receiving-side communications device via a receiving-side coupler.
