Abstract

The paper deals with the design and consequent realization of the alternative non-metal bio-potential electrodes and leads made from conductive polymers: polyaniline and polypyrrole. These alternative nonmetal biopotential electrodes and leads are intended for measurement of the ECG signal from chest by sensory T-shirt. The electrodes and leads are fixed on the T-shirt for continuous measurement and monitoring ECG signal. The alternative electrodes and leads were tested and compared against Ag/AgCl electrodes and common (metal) electrodes.
