Abstract

We have developed a more accurate and reproducible method of quantifying motion artifact in ECG (electrocardiogram) electrodes to assist in electrode assessment and design. It uses an algorithm developed by Sensor Technology & Devices Ltd. to reliably overcome the variation in results due to differing skin types and other causes of spurious readings such as reproducibility of movements used. The method combines a clear, concise experimental protocol with a software package and DSP algorithm to produce a transferable result for one pair of electrodes that can be used for comparison.
