The paper shows the design and implementation of a platform with an array of 5 polymer optical fiber Bragg gratings (POFBGs) placed in key points to monitor the pressure on the foot surface during gait cycles and the body center mass displacements. The results showed a great response compared with solutions using silica optical fibers. A much high sensitivity and repeatability were achieved using the CYTOP fiber as well as proving that the advantages of POF is a viable and useful solution for this type of application for a future implementation of an integrated “in-shoe” CYTOP POFBGs sensor network.||ISBN:||978-989758277-6||DOI:||10.5220/0006533700250029||Rights:||© 2018 by SCITEPRESS – Science and Technology Publications, Lda.
