We examined experimentally the relationship between perpendicular and tangential electrical conductivities, sigma, and peak current density J, in pig skin dermis and subcutaneous fat specimens by using a four-electrode measuring system with rectangular pulse electrical current (RPEC). We also investigated the relationship of the conductivity, sigma, vs. pulse rate, f. The rates were selected at 8, 32, 64, and 128 pulses per second (pps), and the pulse width was fixed at 140 microseconds. These… CONTINUE READING
