Product Overview

These flexible, dry electrodes offer research-grade signal quality for ECG, EMG, and facial EEG data! Compatible with all OpenBCI boards and standard bio-amplifiers.

  • We are very excited to work with IDUN Technologies to offer this affordable, high-quality biosensing kit to our community! 

    The Dryode™ Alpha offers waterproof, research-grade signal quality with the ease of a consumer product. This state-of-the-art flexible dry electrode is designed for biopotential data acquisition (ECG, EMG, and EEG). Connect Dryodes to any OpenBCI board using OpenBCI snap electrode cables, as well as standard off-the-shelf bio-amplifiers.

    Advantages of the Dryode™:

    • Cost-effective and reusable
    • Uniquely flexible polymer ensures stable contact with skin
    • Biocompatible and hypoallergenic 
    • Material that moves with you
    • Reduced motion and noise artifacts
    • Waterproof

    Scientifically Validated for EEG, EMG and ECG

    The Dryode™ material resulted from extensive research in collaboration with ETH Zurich. The paper titled, "Skin Conformal Polymer Electrodes for Clinical ECG and EEG Recordings" was published in the Journal of Advanced Healthcare Materials.

    The Mobile Health Systems Lab of ETH Zurich published a paper featuring the Dryode™ Alpha for sleep EEG research. "A Protocol for Comparing Dry and Wet EEG Electrodes During Sleep" was accepted to the Frontiers of Neuroscience, Neural Technology in June 2020.
