In recent years, there has been public concern about the possibility of biological hazards from human exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted by wearable sensors or devices. Specific absorption rate (SAR), is used as a factor to estimate health risks and needs to be measured to meet the safety limits recommended by the IEEEIFCC. Two SAR measurement methods, namely, the Electric-field probe mcthod and the thcrmogrnphlc method, are reviewed In this paper with respect to the measurement system and procedure.
