Title: ANTENNA FOR APPENDAGE-WORN MINIATURE COMMUNICATIONS DEVICE
Abstract:
Antennas, antenna systems, and communications devices are described that provide an antenna utilizing a fractal and/or self-similar conductive element that is novel and inventive in that its small in size and exhibits multiple-band or wideband frequency coverage which allows a miniature communications device incorporating the antenna to operate (e.g., function) with wide-band capabilities in close-proximity to a user's body and in form factor suitable for wearing by the user. As noted above, previous size and performance limitations of prior art antennas/devices were poor and made those devices either of limited utility or inoperable.
