An object that is made of conductors allows charges to transfer across the whole object. Materials that conduct ions, protons or electrons are capable of transferring electricity. Materials that conduct heat are thermal conductors. Those materials that conduct both heat and electricity include silver and gold. The human body is considered a conductor because when it gets a static charge, it distributes the charge throughout the body.
