Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Dryode (Innovative, preparation-free, bio-electrodes for next-generation wearable devices)
Reporting period: 2019-08-01 to 2019-11-30
1) The selected materials are soft and stretchable, matching mechanical skin properties and highly conductive, based on silver microparticles.
2) The surface structures of Dryode’s materials increase the contact area to the skin for improved signal quality and adhere based on geometrical forces, ensuring continuous contact.
The breakthrough technology not only overcomes the limitations of existing wet or dry electrodes, with regards to signal quality in long-term monitoring and user comfort for the former, and motion artifacts for the later; it allows completely new wearable applications, for instance in underwater environments, through dense hairy scalp or through the ear canal, into a customized shape.
