We measured the impedance of skin coated with gel, but otherwise unprepared from 1 Hz to 1 MHz at ten sites on the thorax, leg, and forehead of ten subjects. For a 1 cm2 area, the 1 Hz impedance varied from 10 kΩ to 1 MΩ, which suggests that biopotential amplifier input impedance should be very high to avoid common mode to differential mode voltage conversion. 1 MHz impedance was tightly clustered about 120 Ω. 100 kHz impedance was about 220 Ω,which suggests that the variation in skin impedance may cause errors in two electrode electrical impedance tomographs.

Effects of stray capacitance to ground in bipolar material impedance measurements based on direct-contact electrodes Aliau Bonet, Carles; Pallàs Areny, Ramon (2014-10-01)
Restricted access - publisher's policyBipolar material impedance measurements are easier to implement than tetrapolar measurements but are more affected by electrode impedance. This effect can be reduced by measuring at a high-enough frequency albeit with the ...
