Measurement of body voltage alone can result in erroneous conclusions in qualification of footwear and flooring systems in combination with a person. Measurement uncertainties should be taken into account. We have studied the time dependency and charge generation of some footwear and flooring systems. The most significant inconsistencies of the voltage measurement are discussed in this technical paper.
