Classical approaches for measuring high-quality ECG require the use of gel electrodes and individually shielded cables, which limit patient comfort, especially in long-term use. We recently introduced a novel sensing architecture-so-called cooperative sensors-that allow the use of active dry electrodes connected by two unshielded wires. The aim of this work is to qualitatively evaluate an ECG recorded with a dry-electrode cooperative-sensor system. To that end, preliminary observations were made on three healthy subjects. The ECGs were concurrently recorded with cooperative sensors and a gold-standard 12-lead ECG device during a stress test on a stationary bicycle. First experimental measurements demonstrated the reliability of the approach for a wearable 12-lead ECG monitoring system tested in real settings.
