Abstract--Human body will act as a transmission channel in
wearable wireless devices in the near future. Inclusion of the
body as a transmission channel will see future wireless networks
rely heavily on Body Area Networks (BAN) with applications
in medical and personal area networks. In order to build BAN
devices, it is imperative to model the channel accurately. Channel
measurements are important, however, a closer look on the
body channel can only be attained through Electromagnetic
(EM) propagation modelling. This paper presents a preliminary
analytical EM channel model for BAN. Specifically, the dyadic
Green's function for a simple cylindrical human body model
