This paper proposes a backscattering communication technique based on modulated frequency selective surfaces (FSS) for wearable applications. The FSS is composed of dipoles loaded with varactor diodes to modulate the backscatter response, in order to separate it from the clutter. The paper describes the effect in the transponder response according to the number of dipoles, the separation between them and the effect produced when FSS is placed on-body. An analysis based on simulations of several cases and experimental results is provided.
