The project aims to design and develop a fully 3D Printed Flexible ECG Patch with Dry Electrodes. The student will work on the design and 3D printing of different conductive materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes, and testing them as ECG dry electrodes. The student will be characterizing the reliability of the electrodes using a semiconductor device analyzer ad probe station, in addition to the endurance of the electrodes after performing several bending, twisting and stretching cycles.
