An improved biomedical electrode and connector assembly is disclosed wherein the connector contains a magnet to facilitate mating with an elongated upstanding contact member of the electrode. Electrical contact between the connector and the electrode occurs along some portion of the upstanding contact member so that a space or gap is formed between the connector and the electrode plate of the electrode. Apparatus whereby the connector may be intentionally disconnected with ease, but accidental disconnection is prevented, are also provided.
