Progress in Preparation and Application of Fabric Electrodes
Abstract: Fabric electrode is an emerging electrode element; due to some of its advantages, it can replace traditional conductive gel to become the next generation of electrode. This paper starts from the definition of fabric electrode, introduces the definition and working principle of fabric electrode, materials of producing electrodes preparation methods, and highlights the fabric used in the myoelectric prosthetic electrodes, supercapacitors and ECG tests.
