Abstract

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.
