This paper presents the design of a triple-band implantable miniaturised slot PIFA antenna for Medical Implant Communication Service (MICS) band at 433MHz, Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) band at 1430 MHz and Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band at 2.4GHz. Simulations based on homogeneous and inhomogeneous phantoms are employed to design the proposed small antenna suitable for implanting in the arm or under the chest. The measured results are obtained by immersing a prototype of the proposed antenna in a phantom. The antenna occupies a volume less than 1cm3 and its size reduction is about 50% compared to the standard E-shaped patch antenna reported in the literature
