Biocompatibility, sensing resolution and the comfort of the patient are key parameters for manometric sensing systems. A new sensing approach which could fulfill all these needs is presented in this paper consisting of an embedded polymer fiber sensor, based on multiplexed fiber Bragg gratings. A response to a radial pressure almost 6 times that of a comparable silica fiber based sensor is obtained.||ISBN:||978-142449288-6||DOI:||10.1109/ICSENS.2011.6127216||Rights:||© 2011 IEEE.||Type:||Book Chapter|
