The Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure integrated with microstrip patch antenna is designed for various wearable applications. This antenna resonates at three bands 2.81GHz,7.72GHZ and 8.64GHz which supports the ISM band and for military applications. The EBG integrated antenna structure has the dimensions of 90 x 90mm which minimizes the size of the antenna. Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) value has also been determined to evaluate the absorption of radiation onto the human body which is a useful calculation for wearable applications.
