EMG with metal conductive fabric electrodes

Postby skywalker7861 » Wed Mar 01, 2017 1:49 am

I have a hardware related question. I have been trying with Delsys/Noraxon EMG system lately and I am curious to know if Bitalino has EMG development boards that dont need the skin adhesives? I prefer something that uses the conductive metal to measure surface EMG as opposed to using the gels. I am assuming the gels are probably more accurate but its also hard to keep replacing them for each measurement.

If you have any development boards that dont need gels, can you please let me know or how to design one?

Hi there,

First of all we'd like to thank you for your interest in BITalino... actually our EMG sensors work really well with non-gelled electrodes:

On our store you can find gold electrodes, non-gelled Ag/AgCl electrodes, conductive textile lycras and stainless steel pads as well:

Another tool that you'll surely find nice are the SnapBIT attachments, where you can solder the sensors directly on to the snaps:

The EMG sensors are powered with 0-3.3V with a midpoint voltage of 1.65V and standard analog output compatible with any ADC:

We also have our own analog-to-digital conversion boards, which are optimised for real-time streaming (just like Delsys / Noraxon):

Hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions we can help with, don't hesitate in contacting us again.

Best regards,
The BITalino Team
