This paper investigates the appropriate frequency band and antenna used for a non-contact heart and respiratory rate monitoring system applying an antenna. As a result of measurements with different resonant frequency antennas, it is found that the appropriate frequency band is around 600 MHz. Furthermore, an antenna having multi resonance elements reduces the influence of abdominal motion in breathing at detecting heart rate.
