Capacitive ECG Monitoring for Wearables and Smart Clothes
ECG measurement using galvanic coupled electrodes is an established method for monitoring cardiac activity in medicine. In some cases, the use of gel electrodes leads to skin irritations. In addition, the electrodes have to be connected to the ECG recorder via cable. Wearing the electrodes and cables is inconvenient for the patient and they can lead-off unnoticed during motion. There is also a psychological effect related to the wearing of medical devices, which can influence the diagnostic assay. The motivation is to improve the long-term application on patients by using a non-galvanic capacitive ECG measurement system completely integrated in a smart cloth. The developed measurement system consists of two circular sensors with active and passive shielding. A Pan-Tompkins algorithm for R-wave detection has also been implemented. First motion tests with an ergometer were successful. The results of the capacitive ECG measurements are comparable with those of the galvanic measurement.
