This study proposes a novel compact antenna design for MedRadio Band (401{ 406 MHz). The basic structure is based on the PIFA antenna. The ground plane is bent to the other side of the substrate to reduce the size. The point of C is connected to the C'. The proposed miniaturized antenna is printed on the PCB board (FR4 substrate with thickness of 0.8 mm, dielectric constant of 4.4), with a total size of 320mm3 (0:0269λ0 × 0:0269λ0 × 0:00108λ0 mm3). The proposed antenna is the single layer design, which total size is compact. Its return loss is more than 15 dB at 404 MHz. The antenna simulated gain and efficiency are -24 dBi and 0.26%. Moreover, its bandwidth covers the whole MedRadio band (401-406 MHz). This compact antenna is suitable for implantable applications.
