Very Realistic Physiological Signal Sources

Figure 6.35 An electrolyte tank can be used to investigate how FNS currents applied through skin electrodes distribute within the body to cause tissue stimulation. The setup consists of a 40 cm X 30 cm X 30 cm glass tank (a small aquarium) filled with isoconductive saline. A carbon-loaded elastomer layer simulates the patient's skin. A differential probe made with two gold wires exposed 1 mm to the saline solution and placed parallel 1 mm apart simulate the stimulation spatial constant of myelinated axons.
