This paper investigates a non-contact heart and respiration rate monitoring with antennas. In order to examine antenna effect on the non-contact monitoring, differences of antenna resonant frequency or antenna type are investigated by experiment. In the experiment, it is found that the higher the antenna resonant frequency is, the easier the heart rate is identified. In addition, it is shown that by using only one open circuit end type dipole antenna, both the heart and respiration rate in spine posture can be identified.
