Using human beings as test subjects in electrical safety investigations is possible only under limited conditions. Research experiments were performed under conditions similar to those found in Reilly’s experiments, but using porcine tissues. Phenomena very similar to those in reference experiments were observed. Three different biomedical electrodes were characterized and modeled for the experiments.
