Paper Abstract

Authors of this article focused on the use of fiber-optic technology for monitoring heart and respiratory rate of the human body. The article describes an innovative method of encapsulating fiber Bragg grating (FBG) into polymer polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and comparison of this measuring probe with an FBG sensor glued on the plexiglass pad. The team of authors offers a solution which is basically focused on the monitoring of long-term ill patients with a minimum of physical movement load. Real data were acquired from a group of 10 volunteers with their written consent in the laboratory environment. Acquired data was compared by the Bland-Altman method.
