Stimulated by the COVID-19 outbreak, the global healthcare industry better acknowledges the necessity of innovating novel methods for remote healthcare monitoring and treating patients outside clinics. Here we report the development of two different types of graphene textile electrodes differentiated by the employed fabrication techniques (i.e., dip-coating and spray printing) and successful demonstration of ergonomic and truly wearable, single-arm diagnostic electrocardiography (SADE) using only 3 electrodes positioned on only 1 arm. The performance of the printed graphene e-textile wearable systems were benchmarked against the “gold standard” silver/silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) “wet” electrodes; achieving excellent correlation up to ∼ 96% and ∼ 98% in ECG recordings (15 s duration) acquired with graphene textiles fabricated by dip-coating and spray printing techniques, respectively. In addition, we successfully implemented automatic detection of heartrate of 8 volunteers (mean value: 74.4 bpm) during 5 min of static and dynamic daily activities and benchmarked their recordings with a standard fingertip photoplethysmography (PPG) device. Heart rate variability (HRV) was calculated, and the root means successive square difference (rMMSD) metric was 30 ms during 5 min of recording. Other cardiac parameters such as R-R interval, QRS complex duration, S-T segment duration, and T-wave duration were also detected and compared to typical chest ECG values.
