Can I use dry or pre-gelled electrodes with the ExG sensor?

Generally, you can use any of our electrode based sensors with dry or pre-gelled electrodes.

However, it is important to highlight some of the advantages and disadvantages of each method to help you through both experiences. You can find this information below.

If you are inexperienced with dry electrodes or any electrode-based sensors in general, we recommend starting with using pre-gelled electrodes and moving towards the use of dry electrodes as you become comfortable with your data acquisition setup.

We also recommend the following articles to help you during your skin preparation and electrode placing process

Pre-Gelled Electrodes

Advantages

  • Pre-gelled (better signal quality)
  • Self-adhesive (ensures placement)
  • Easy-to-use
  • Fit most sensor placement setups
  • Less noise in signals

Disadvantages

  • Disposable
  • Gel & adhesive can be difficult to use for placements with limited space or hair

You can find our self-adhesive & pre-gelled electrodes in our webstore.

Dry Electrodes

Advantages

  • Smaller footprint
  • Re-usable
  • Works with any electrode gel or adhesive of your choice or without gel

Disadvantages

  • No gel & adhesive to reduce noise factors
  • Needs electrode fixation through other accessories (e.g. tape)
  • Higher risk of noise in signals
