In this paper, multiplexed sensor network capable of monitoring the shape changes of the torso for respiratory function monitoring is developed. As a demonstration, LPGs written into refractive index insensitive, progressive three layered fibre are embedded into supporting material is then placed on a resuscitation training manikin simulating respiration. A derivative spectroscopy interrogation technique is implemented and the bend sensitivity of the LPGs is used to reconstruct the shape of the manikin's torso. © 2003 IEEE.
