Measuring Contact Pressure on the Skin's Surface

03/12/2007 11:54 AM

Hello,

I am trying to measure the electrode-skin interface impedance, the result varies with contact pressure, does anyone have an idea of what I can use to measure the contact pressure between the electrode and the skin, I am using an elastic belt round the lower torso to hold the electrodes in place on the skin

I don't exactly understand your application, but, one possibility might be Tekscan's flexiforce sensors. You can find more info here.

Tekscan works pretty good. Also look into Sensor Products Tactilus for real time analysis. If you don't want real time data and would like to save some money you can use Pressurex or Fuji Paper.
