In rapidly developing technology, most of engineering applications need to be done remotely. An antenna is needed to transmit the values ​​received as a result of these remote studies. The antenna type that is more suitable to use in line with this need is the Wi-Fi antenna. Although this antenna is low in cost, it provides benefits to the user by using a good band. In this study, a Wi-Fi antenna design at 2.4 GHz frequency for use in the E-Health kit-based biotelemetry module is discussed. In this designed antenna, FR-4 substrate with dielectric coefficient of 4.3 is used. In the ground and patch parts, copper was used as the material. The return loss is 13.54 dB at 2.4GHz operating frequency with the gain value of 2.75 dBi. It was aimed to use this antenna as a Wi-Fi antenna in the E-Health kit-based biotelemetry module.
