Moss Electrodes Development Kit

Add sensing functionality to your Smart Textiles: capacitive touch sensors or biomedical electrodes – moss-embroidered electrodes provide a whole range of possibilities! 

This development kit contains 9 moss-embroidered electrodes in three different sizes. This allows you to quickly and reliably test the function of the electrodes in specific applications. Each electrode has an additional embroidered area to facilitate the connection to your electronic equipment by using e.g. conductive snap fasteners. 

Traditional electrodes rely on a conductive gel to minimize skin-to-electrode resistance. However, the gel dries over time and can cause skin irritations which makes gel electrodes unsuitable for long-term applications. Conventional dry electrodes are mostly rigid and flat and only offer punctual contact to the skin. Moss-embroidered electrodes, on the other hand, are soft and flexible and adapt to skin relief when pressed against the body, ensuring low skin-to-electrode resistance without the need of using conductive gel. 

Due to their softness, embroidered electrodes are basically unnoticeable to the subject. This makes them suitable for various applications in the fields of personal healthcare and fitness. Moss-embroidered electrodes can be used not only for short and long-term biosignal acquisition (ECG, EMG, EEG) but are also preferred for electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) therapy.
