This paper provides a comparative study between the different available mediums, to be used as data carriers, for intra-body communications. Properties of these data carriers experienced while propagating through the body tissues are calculated using sets of experimental data available in literature and then compared to show which carrier has higher potential to meet the intra-body communication requirements. A simple accurate model is then presented for the signal transmission through the body. Parameters studied are the attenuation and delay while factoring the effect of biological differences due to age, gender etc.
