Abstract
This article describes the combination of the polymer material polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and fiber-optic sensors for monitoring the heart rate (HR) of the human body. We proposed, created, and encapsulated into PDMS two type of fiberoptic sensors based on the interferometric and Bragg grating principle. Both above-mentioned fiber-optic sensors we compared with the conventional ECG monitoring system. Measurement was performed in the laboratory conditions with the group of 6 volunteers with their written contest. Acquired data were compared by the Bland-Altman method. The result presented in this short article confirms that fiber-optic sensors can be used as an alternative to conventional ECG.
