Meridian Medical Systems develops products that use microwave energy to generate heat, measure radiation and motion, and monitor and maintain the temperature of blood and other fluids. This application note discusses how AWR Microwave Office’s design software was recently used to develop an accurate feedback mechanism for cardiac arrhythmia.
This application models the specific absorption rate (SAR) distribution in a human head, heart, and body exposed to an electromagnetic field emitted from a handheld cellular phone operating in GSM (900 MHz and 1,800 MHz) and GPS range in a partially closed environment. In the modeling, SAM Phantom IEEE model and a realistic human head and body are used to investigate both the local and average SAR of 1 g and 10 g tissue.
