In this paper we present the body worn antenna for remote monitoring the human body specifically designed for telemedicine applications. The conventional antennas are not flexible & difficult for mobile users. There is a need of antennas which can be worn and part of user clothing defined as wearable micro strip patch antennas. The proposed antenna design is based on Coplanar waveguide feeding technique with inverted Double-U shaped connected slots on rectangular shaped radiating patch which is resonated at 1.85 GHz to regularly monitoring the human body for good health care services. The antenna parameters are Radiation pattern, Gain & VSWR are analysed using HFSS for inverted Double-U shaped antenna. The antenna with compact size of 21mmx28mmx1.6mm provides the VSWR value as < 2 and the gain of about 1.0466 dB. The reflection loss is about -20.0725 dB at 1.85 GHZ.

Keywords: Body worn antenna, CPW-Fed antenna, Inverted Double-U shaped antenna.
