  • Capacitive ECG measurement systems have been moving in the research spotlight in the past years. Due to their ability to measure ECG signals without direct contact to the body surface, they are well-suited for monitoring applications in personal healthcare scenarios. However, signal quality is insufficient for diagnostic purposes. Main causes are motion artefacts and triboelectricity. In this work, we propose active humidification using water vapour as a measure to improve signal quality. After… CONTINUE READING
