Wireless head cap for EOG and facial EMG measurements.


A head cap made of fabric for measuring EOG and facial EMG signals is presented. Reusable and easy to use electrodes, embroidered of silver coated thread, are integrated into the cap. A two-way wireless data transmission link operating at license free 2.4 GHz frequency band is used for transferring the 16-bit measurement data, sampled with 1 kHz frequency from six channels at maximum, to the receiver device connected to a PC. Tailored PC software is used for displaying the signals and controlling the measurement parameters. The measurement system is intended for recording facial expressions during human emotion studies but it can also be utilized in computer user interface control. The paper shows preliminary results from EOG and facial EMG measurements.
