The first attempt was done with textile electrodes without gel. The contact pressure of the electrodes on the skin was controlled through elastic bands, which allowed a loose (low contact pressure) and a fixed, but not uncomfortable, position (higher contact pressure). In the second trial, the textile electrodes were wetted with gel normally used for electrocardiographic measurements. 27 ZBody), which could be attributed to the capacitive and different electrode coupling (influence of ZSkin-Electrode).
Nowadays electrodes consist of aluminium and are coated with a hydrogel, which both serve as the adhesive of the electrodes on the skin and as an electrolytic medium. The use of gel coating may produce allergic reactions, which limits its long-term use. e. a mild dehydration means only a loss of 5 % of body water ). The system also has to take the influence of external parameters into account. From our experience and from that of other authors, the influence of the body position on the measured impedance alone can be around ± 3-6 % , .
