Abstract
We assess the feasibility of fabricating a flexible RFID wrist-worn antenna printed on a substrate manufactured using 3D-printing technology, as to enable full customization of the bracelet at low cost. Numerical results show adequate power transmission to the RFID chip. Also, the fabricated prototype shows enough flexibility to be bent around the wrist.
