Abstract: Utilization of Flexible antennas for the development of wearable devices have been extensively increased due to less weight, high performance, compact design and easy fabrication. The proposed antenna is designed with circular patch with slot using different flexible substrate materials. The various antenna parameters of all the designed structure were checked, correlated and analyzed. Ultra Wide Band (UWB) frequency range of 3.1-10.6 GHz was selected as operating frequency. The results show that proposed antenna with jute material as substrate has shown better results in return loss, VSWR, Gain and Directivity both in flat and on-body bending conditions. Results demonstrate the suitability of these flexible antennas for on-body wireless communications.
