Bio-potential sensing materials as dry electrodes and devices Patent uri icon


  • This invention is directed to materials and devices for sensing bio-potential signals from animals, particularly to sensing bio-potential signals to monitor humans in the medical field. In general, bio-potential sensors may be attached to the body of an animal, such as a human, in order to receive bio-potential signals such that information about the bioelectrical properties of the cells and/or tissues of the animal may be gathered. The bio-potential sensor may generally include a dry electrode that may be placed in contact with the skin of an animal to receive bio-potential signals from the animal. A dry electrode may generally include an electrically conductive solid material which may conduct electrical signals from an animal.
