Optical fibers have many uses and in addition to communications applications for example in fiber-optic sensor applications. The area of pressure and vibration measurement is one of the many fields of applicability of optical fibers too. Very often, the fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) is also used for medical applications. This paper describes our alternative approach to addressing this issue, based on standard optical fibers, special optical connections, PDMS-based products, and other materials. It is known that the vibrations of some machines can negatively affect the human body. The vibration detector created by us can find a use for indicative measurement of these negative vibrations of machines, especially in the frequency range up to about 100 Hz.
