A dual-band wearable antenna is designed on a textile material. The design operates at ISM bands available for Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) with an input match better than -15 dB. The antenna is designed by using Computational Electromagnetic Software (CEMS) based on Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method. A three-layer phantom model including skin, fat and muscle has been considered to compute the specific absorption rate (SAR). The maximum value of SAR averaged over 1g and 10g of tissue is less than 1.6 W/Kg and 2 W/Kg, respectively, when the maximum incident power of the antenna is 63 mW. These values are incompliance with the international electromagnetic safety standards.
