In this paper, a conformai meander line antenna for wireless telemetry is proposed. The capsule antenna is simulated in free space and in a one-layer body phantom to determine its characteristics and performance in a body tissue environment using the CST software package. Free space measurements were conducted using prototype devices, the results of which showed good agreement with those from the simulations.
