Title Measurement of body resistance in living subjects
Original title Messung des Körperwiderstandes an lebenden Personen [in German]
Bibliographic information Jan. 1978, Vol.95, No.1, p.1-2. Illus. 1 ref.
Abstract The experimental conditions are described with results. Resistance was measured in 3 situations: direct-current voltage, and 50Hz and 2kHz alternating-current voltage (peak level 35V). Evaluation was done with consideration of the resistance limiting the making current. Diagrams show the values for impedance and current limiting resistance measured. The constancy of the current limiting resistance is stressed.
