Medical devices that monitor biological signals on the skin often rely on the use of rigid and non-breathable electrodes. Specifically, electrodermal activity (EDA), a neurological response quantitatively monitored through sweat, is currently being detected with the use of solid silver/silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrodes in a clinical setting. This work presents breathable and flexible EDA electrodes based on Ag/AgCl-coated nylon yarns integrated into various textile substrates, which are compared to conventional rigid Ag/AgCl electrodes. We identified textile properties that affect the detection of the EDA signal, which can impact the future development of wearable systems for long-term EDA monitoring. View this paper.
