Historically, producing high quality, low noise ECG signals from dry electrodes has been a challenge for many product manufactures and industries.
A successful solution to this challenge depends on the complete system integration i.e. the electrodes, the hardware, the DSP filtering and the algorithm. We provide an end to end system solution for ECG and all areas are interdependent on each other.
Skin Characteristics Variation
There is a large variation in skin characteristics across populations. Poor or uninformed hardware and electrode design decisions can significantly limit the number of users the hardware will operate with, increasing the potential for returns and poor public relations. It is crucial to manage and overcome these issues to allow improved sensor performance. There is also a large variation in skin properties across different locations of the body e.g. fingertip and wrist characteristics may be different.
Electrode Material Choice
Electrode materials interact with the human skin in different ways. Understanding the mechanism behind this interaction and applying it to the electrode material selection process will contribute to a more robust and higher performing solution.
Electrode material characteristics can age and degrade over time which needs to be considered when selecting materials.
Combined Aesthetics & Performance
Electrode characterisation and evaluation will help the engineering team to find the best functional solution while maintaining the mechanical and aesthetic requirements.
With careful design, multiple design cycles will not be required leading to reduced costs in development.
Validation of electrode and AFE (Analogue Front End) hardware solution alongside feedback on signal performance.

With over 70 years combined experience in our engineering team, we provide you with world class expertise from leaders in the engineering field.
To get a team up to the level of knowledge required to provide these services, it could take a significant amount of time. We offer these services immediately, getting you to market faster.
With 50+ combined years of design experience, B-Secur have nurtured close partnerships with leading ECG AFE suppliers. This enables our experts to advise on a range of areas to ensure the best possible system performance, including; AFE selection, configuration and setup, optimisation of AFE to electrodes and AFE hardware verification.
At B-Secur we have assembled a dedicated team of highly skilled data analysts capable of formulating effective methods of data gathering for robust algorithm testing of our User ID algorithms, in conformity to ISO 19795, as well as our health and wellness algorithms, in line with current medical standards.
We work closely with a number of external organisations including NPL, CSIT and alongside The Government of Jersey General Hospital.
Our team has also carried out several Wellness Collections Schemes with local businesses to highlight the benefits of monitoring employees vital signs in the workplace.
