Wearable polyurethane optical fiber based sensor for breathing monitoring

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We experimentally demonstrate a wearable breathing monitoring sensor based on a polyurethane (PU) optical fiber. The mechanical flexibility of the PU fiber allows for the simple measurement of inhalation and exhalation motions through optical transmission variations of the fiber induced by bending and stretching.
