Abstract:

Transcutaneous electrical stimulation is commonly applied using self-adhesive electrodes. In order to measure the current distribution of such electrodes a skin mimicking measurement system was developed. It was investigated using a finite element (FE) model. The following aspects of the measurement system were analyzed: Pad size, inter pad spacing; Pad resistor (simulated skin); Are the discrete resistors a good model of the skin layer?; Does the fat and muscle layer have to be taken into account in the calculation of the discrete resistors? Can the horizontal current flow which is due to the gold pads be neglected? How big are the edge effects? What kind of inhomogeneities of the electrode can be measured (limit of size and resistance)?
