In this paper, a study based on the different models of the skin impedance is carried out. The purpose is to examine the drug delivery method through iontophoresis, which relies on active transportation of the charged medication agent within an electric field. It is a kind of transdermal drug delivery method, and hence the method has to handle the variability in skin characteristics of a patient. This paper carries out a simulation study based on three different skin impedance models. Index
