A tape electrode usable for the transmission of electrical signals into the human body through the skin. The electrode is flexible in construction so that it may be applied to the skin to secure good electrical contact therewith and remain in place for extended periods despite movement, perspiration and the presence of water on the skin surface. The tape construction includes a surface of a conductive material combined with an adhesive on one surface and the conductive material with a magnetic powder on the second surface together with a coupler through a permanent magnet or magnetic substance to which a lead wire is connected to effect electrical connection through the conductive material in the adhesive and retain the lead wire in position through the magnetic attraction of the permanent magnet to the magnetic material.
