Abstract In this paper, we discussed the design restraint for designing implantable microstrip antenna (MSA) for body centric communication. We suggested an approach to design implantable MSA used for body centric communication. We also reported a multilayer MSA for medical implant communication services (MICS) band. A superstrate layer was kept to make certain the biocompatibility of the implanted antenna. The size of proposed MSA was small enough to implant into human head-scalp. Further the return loss characteristics for three different superstrate materials were carried out. We also investigated the return loss characteristics by changing substrate material between two radiating patches in firstly designed antenna for MICS band.
