Current disposable wet electrodes for biopotential monitoring can cause skin irritations and dry out over time. This limits usability as well as long-term monitoring applications. Additionally, disposable wet electrodes are prone to motion artifacts and are not water resistant.

The soft and flexible dry electrode allows high precision biopotential monitoring (ECG, EMG, EEG) with an unobtrusive user experience. The Dryode™ Kit addresses researchers, developers and makers with its reusable high-end electrodes. The Dryode™ Kit is compatible with the OpenBCI Ganglion and Cyton. OpenBCI allows anyone interested in biosensing, brain-computer interfacing and neurofeedback to purchase high-quality equipment at affordable prices, says a press release.
