Abstract

A textile-based ECG system for sleeper is presented. The electrode in the system is supported by a foam pad to ensure good contact as well as comfort to the wearer, and a flexible rubber to ensure that the electrode will electrically connect to the wearer only when pressed. Eight electrodes are multiplexed such that exactly two electrodes are pressed to connect the wearer no matter how the wearer lies. When the wearer lies in different positions, he/she will press different two electrodes, and then the morphology of the output ECG signal will be different accordingly. By this feature, the system can not only detect ECG but also determine the position of the sleeper.
