Title: Application of Textile Electrodes in Medical Telemetry
Keywords: telemetric monitoring, textile sensors, textile electrodes, wearable technology

Abstract: Textile sensors and, in particular, textile electrodes are becoming more widely used in medical practice because of their characteristics: quick response, flexibility in electrode design, low price/cost-effectiveness. The objective of this paper is to discuss questions related to the design, the performance evaluation and the use/ implementations of textile electrodes in the context of long-term ambulatory (telemetric) measurements. The applications of textile electrodes are summarized according to sensor features as well as to different applications for registration of biomedical signals, predominantly related to the heart activity of patients with cardiovascular diseases.
