Tissue-mimicking phantom is a biological tissue replacement which has been used as a replacement to understand the relationship between the electromagnetic and the human body. However, many of the developed phantoms are produced for several MHz to several GHz region, and less in the kHz region. This research introduces a new phantom to understand the electromagnetic effect at kHz region. The phantom is a 500kHz phantom which mimics human muscle dielectric properties. The dielectric properties of the phantom are adjusted by aluminum powder content, which is 40% of the total phantoms content. In this research, we use different phantom dielectric properties measurement method compared to the one at higher frequencies. Furthermore, the phantom thermal properties and density are measured to be used in numerical calculations.
