Two methodologies are proposed to detect the patient-specific boundary of the chest, aiming to produce a more accurate forward model for EIT analysis. Thus, a passive resistive and an inertial prototypes were prepared to characterize and reconstruct the shape of multiple phantoms. Preliminary results show how the passive device generates a minimum scatter between the reconstructed image and the actual shape
