Methodologies for measuring the radiation emitted by new wearable antenna technology in T-shirts.

Wearable antennas could be the future of wireless technology, but there are concerns about power losses as the human body absorbs the emitted electromagnetic signals. This research tested a number of novel measurement techniques that could help the development of this exciting new technology, including measuring the radiation absorbed by a 'human dummy'.
