Fibre-optic sensors are used to monitor the force and temperature of dental splints worn by patients suffering from sleep apnoea. Owing to the small size of the sensors, they can be easily embedded within the splint in a way that does not affect the effectiveness of the splint, and, at the same time, are able to indicate whether the splint has been properly worn by the patient. The overall dimensions of the sensor are approximately 0.375 mm thickness, 1 cm length and 3 mm width. The force and… CONTINUE READING
