Multilayer Chest Phantom V1

Multilayer Chest Phantom V1

Layered chest phantom (skin, fat, and muscle tissue) for accurate evaluation and quality assurance of an implantable medical device with a radiofrequency (RF) link



Precise and repeatable assessment of the communication system of implant devices; representing the path loss in real humans including inter-tissue reflections


Skin layer manufactured from a silicone- and carbon-based mixture (color:Black) with dielectric properties according to CTIA definitions for hand phantoms

Muscle and fat layers filled with two tissue simulating liquids with muscle and fat dielectric properties, respectively

High-precision, low-RF-loss plastic used for outer shell and thin wall separating fat and muscle liquid compartments

Specialized device holder enables repeatable positioning of the implant at different depths underneath the skin


Width:  400 mm
Depth:  260 mm
Height: 365 mm 


Inner volume: 6.2 liters, outer volume: 8.2 liters

Liquid Compatibility

The Multilayer Chest Phantom V1 is compatible with SPEAG's tissue simulating liquids (sugar and oil based). Use of other liquids may deteriorate the structure of the phantom. Long term storage of tissue simulating liquids in the phantom should be avoided.

Frequency Range

0.3 – 3 GHz or >3 GHz
