In this paper we have proposed to describe the design and fabrication of a Double Band Button Antenna for wearable BAN range applications. The BAN range is a set of frequencies in the ISM band. The ISM band is reserved for Industry, Scientific, Medicine related band. BAN devices are fabricated for on body wearable applications such that they can monitor vital bodily functions at all times as in certain cases it may be necessary to constantly monitor bodily functions of the wearer. In this paper we have chosen to implement a dual band button antenna that is designed to operate for 2.45 GHz and 5 GHz. The Button Dual Band Antenna will have a return loss of -32.5 dB and -16.8 dB at the respective frequencies.
