Abstract: It is aimed to provide an insight on microstrip patch antenna in biomedical applications, the challenges and to discuss the procedure in the way they are dealt so far, in the literature. Microstrip patch antenna gained considerable scientific interest because of its integration with textiles, body mounted applications and medical implants. The ease of integration, confirmability, planar structure, miniaturization, patient safety and biocompatibility make pondering conclusion of intriguing mathematical and experimental paradigm. Simulation tools like HFSS, CST Microwave Studio etc., are being used and the antenna is fabricated after getting satisfactory results. The fabricated antenna is tested under various bio-medical, environmental and mechanical stress and strain conditions. The challenges along with some remedial solution are being discussed with envision to achieve painless, uncomplicated, trustworthy diagnosis and treatment.
