Antennas are vital components of these wearable devices. The most challenging part of designing wearable antennas is choosing an efficient and cost-effective fabrication method. This work presents the state-of-the-art in recently developed fabrication methods for wearable antennas, which can be grouped according to five categories: embroidered on fabrics, encapsulated in polymer composites, printed using inkjets on flexible laminates and a 3-D printer and, more interestingly, by injecting liquid metal in microchannels; each with their own considerations, strengths, and limitations. Finally, after comparing all of the current methods, some of the noticeably open research topics and future directions for research are highlighted. View this paper.
