Assessment of Carbon/Salt/Adhesive Electrodes for Surface Electromyography Measurements
This work presents the evaluation of novel electrodes for surface electromyography (sEMG) measurements. The electrodes are based on a mixture of carbon powder, quaternary salt and viscoelastic polymeric adhesive (carbon/salt/adhesive or simply CSA), which when combined, provide the unique advantages...
