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.

Why Invest in Professional Services?

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.

Ageing Materials
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.

  • Could ECG authentication act as a catalyst to unlock deep, data-driven insights into health and wellness?
  • What could that tell us about individuals? And how, or - more saliently - should, we use these insights?
  • Crucially, if heartbeat data can go beyond telling us who individuals are to how they are at the same time, does this insight have the power to disrupt?
