Award List:

Practical Non-contact ECG Electrodes for Prep-free Monitoring

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Yu Chi, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $124,853.00
Cognionics has developed a high-quality, low-noise, dry/non-contact ECG electrode that can obtain signals even through layers of clothing without any skin preparation. Although the idea of a non-contact electrode is not new and has been previously investigated by other research groups, a successful… More
