This chapter introduces the use of fiber optic sensors in biomechanics applications. It starts by presenting the field of biomechanics and the technical reasons that make fiber optic sensors an interesting tool for measuring in biomechanics applications. It then explains the application of fiber optic sensors in the biomechanics of rigid bodies, then moves on to deformable bodies, and finishes with fluids, in particular ...
