Non-contact ECG-Measurement for your product

Capacitive Electrodes

ECG-measurement without skin contact

Capacitive ECG electrodes enable a non-contact patient monitoring like it was inconceivable only a few years ago. With this revolutionary technology, an measurement of the electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) can be proceeded without contacting the skin, even through layers of different materials.

Compared to other non-contact measuring technologies, the capacitive ECG measurement is superior and provides more detailed and reliable information. Depending on the applications and requirements, the measurement of the heart rate in the highest medical standard is possible as well as measurements of the heart rate variability, the respiratory rate and additional derivable parameters. Cardiac arrhythmias can be reliably recognized as well.

Due to long-time research, clinical trials, and extensive application experience, we can now provide you the advantages of this technology for commercial products. Feel free to contact us and convince yourself of the superiority of our solutions.


Cardiac monitoring can’t be easier

The integration of flexible capacitive ECG electrodes in your product enables you to receive information about the heart activity and derived physical parameters without any additional effort. The main advantages for our customers are:

Highest Accuracy

We record the heartrate in highest accuracy via an ECG. From this signal, you receive additional information about physical parameters like heart rate variability or respiratory rate.

Highest Comfort

Our solutions are neither visible nor perceptible and therefore meet the highest comfort requirements of your product.


We use different material compositions and production technologies to be able to provide you sensors of any size and shape.

Product Development

Development Service

Capital’s long-time experience in different sectors makes turns us into a dependable development partner for the integration of capacitive sensors. Gain benefit from our knowledge lead and contact us directly.


The application areas of the capacitive sensor technology are very divers and physiological information about users and patients will help to improve your current products as well as develop new ones. Let us give you inspiration by the following application areas.


Smart Seats

By integrating capacitive sensors in driver seats, the driver’s state can be monitored in high quality. Information about the heart rate, the heart rate variability and about the respiratory rate can be used to improve safety and comfort of the driver.
