A constant and continous health monitoring performed in real time is one of the main parameter to achieve success in healing process of clinical patient. Yet, here are still many obstacles such as quality degradation of reading transfer using electrical signals by conductive electrodes due to biological constraint. Namely, irritation to the skin is occured during a long-term monitoring. An alternative solution to overcome this problem is substituting the electrode material of Ag / AgCl which has been used conventionally with a novel bioelectrode that compatible with human skin. Here, a polymer composite material consist of olydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and Carbon Nano Tube (CNT) which has better quality in mechanical flexibility and biodegradability is proposed. This study conducted realization of PDMS electrode that reinforced with Single-Walled Carbon Nano Tube (SWCNT) as filler material in various concentration i.e. 3%, 5% and 7%. We reported that the the modulus of elasticity (E) were in the range of 1.79 MPa to 3,15 Mpa. A series of analytical micromechanical modeling has been included to predict and simulate electromechanical property coresponded to the need of typical weareable electrodes. Keywords : health monitoring, PDMS, CNT, micromechanical modeling, wearable electrodes
