Count your heart beat from a meter away

Scientists at the University of Sussex claim that they could very well usher in a future without clinical electrodes, where the non-contact electric potential sensor (EPS) will be able to allow patients to have their heartbeats monitored from a meter away. Apart from that, they can relax in their hospital bed or home, with other potential applications comprising of MRI sensing probes, human-machine interfaces, non-destructive testing systems and ECG and EEG monitoring systems. Heck, the EPS is sensitive enough to detect muscle signals and eye movements with the potential for checking out even brain and nerve signals.
