Abstract

With the continuous development of wearable health monitoring technology, new types of Electrocardiogram (ECG) electrodes become the focus of attention, such as textile electrode, non-contact electrode, and micro-needle electrode. However, there are not yet unified performance testing methods for different types of electrodes. A testing platform for quantitatively evaluating the electrode performance was designed, which was composed of three parts: an active simulating skin model, a pressure controlling device and a measuring device. In this platform, Millipore films were used to stimulating the skin of human body, and a signal generator were used to stimulating the heart, and the electrolyte was used to stimulating the tissue, and the electrode-skin interface was established. The signal from the signal generator was through the electrolyte, Millipore films, and the electrodes. This situation was equivalent to the one that ECG generated form the heart was through the tissue, the skin, and the electrode. Some quantitatively parameters, obtained with this platform, were impedance spectrum of electrode-skin contact interface, static open circuit voltage, dynamic open circuit voltage, and signal to noise ratio, which was very important for ECG electrode performance analysis.
