Extrinsic optical fibre bending sensor for spine monitoring

Abstract

This paper presents the investigation of an extrinsic optical fibre bending sensor for dynamic spine bending measurement in 2D planes. The sensor consists of one input fibre and three output fibres, confined in two modified holders. The spine bending causes the tilting angle between these two fibres to change, thus modulating the light intensity propagating… (More)
