In the past few years, there has been a huge rise in the need for flexible antennas, especially in the field of body area networks (BANs) or telemetry. The article proposed the performance analysis of different substrates used to design flexible antennas. For this analysis, the antenna is designed using the basic microstrip patch formula with the commonly used substrate FR-4 with a dielectric constant of 4.4. Then, the patch antenna is designed using different flexible materials, and their performance is studied and compared. For one comparison table, the dimension is compared for each substrate using the microstrip patch formula, keeping the LoRa frequency of 868 MHz as a reference. And, for the next comparison, the dimension is kept constant while the substrate is varied, and the results are compared and represented in graphs. From this article, the researcher will get help in selecting the flexible substrate for wearable antenna and the application depending on the size and performance of the transceiver system.
