Paper Title:
Human Body Resistance and Temperature Measurement Device
  Abstract

This paper discusses the design and construction of a human body resistance and temperature measurement device. The device measures the human body temperature and resistance when the sensing probes are placed in contact with the human skin. The design analysis was based on simple electronic circuit theories leading to specification and choice of components used for the construction of the system. After the construction and testing with various individuals the human body resistance and temperature was found to be within the ranges of 1KΩ to 210KΩ and 36.10C to 37.50C respectively. The paper discuses the various effect of current on the human body and their implication. The system can be adapted to various fields such as bio-technology, security (lie detector), safety equipment in industries and companies to determine insulation.
