An electrolyte for a bio-electric event measuring electrode combines a salt with adhesive. The adhesive serves as the vehicle for dispersing solvent to form the electrolyte in a solid or semi-solid mixture. The adhesive serves further as a structural element in holding the parts of a practical electrode together and in making the electrode adhere to a subject's skin.

Such an electrolyte is combined with a mesh or otherwise foraminated patch of pliant material and a connector to form what can be an inexpensive, effective electrode having long shelf life, low irritation, and low electrical resistivity.
