Biopotential measurements are very sensitive to electromagnetic interference (EMI). EMI gets into the acquisition system by many ways, both as differential and common mode signals, driven-right-leg circuits (DRL) are widely used to reduce common mode interference. This paper reports an improvement on the classic DRL. The proposed circuit uses a transconductance amplifier to drive the patient's body. This configuration has some interesting properties, which provide an extended bandwidth for high… CONTINUE READING
