Abstract—Non contact respiratory monitoring is the development of wireless communication systems in telemedicine. A key component of non-contact respiratory monitoring is an antenna. The antenna must be lightweight so that it is compatible with other supporting system components. The paper presents the design of an optimized radiating element that satisfies challenging requirements: ultra wide-band (UWB), directive radiation pattern, small dimensions (in order to reduce its invasiveness) and low cost for realization.
