Intarsia-Sensorized Band and Textrodes for Real-Time Myoelectric Pattern Recognition

By Kirstin Ahmed

To measure electric signals from the muscles electrodes commonly made of metal containing silver are placed on the skin above the muscle, but electrodes made out textiles might be better for long-term use. To ensure that the signal quality is still good we compared textile electrodes with common metal electrodes. We found that the textile electrodes provided as good signals as the metal electrodes, meaning that textile electrodes can be an alternative to metal electrodes
