Why a webinar on Electrodes For Wearables?
There are excellent, well-researched electrodes that are affordable and simple to apply. Electronics for physiological sensors are getting smaller enough to be used in on-body wearables.
However, most electrodes need to be glued to the skin to ensure proper contact and prevent friction or movement. This results in noise (bad signals) or current transfer, making them uncomfortable and irritating the skin. But how can you maintain a strong enough, trustworthy signal coming from (or going to) the body and improve the comfort of your wearable?
When deciding on the best type of electrodes for your product, many questions arise. Many factors influence the type of electrode you need for your wearable and will highly influence the level of integration you can achieve with them.
In less than 60 minutes you will learn everything you need to know about electrodes and how to select the best one for your high-quality wearable with integrated electrodes.
