Description


The project aims to equip epdiural needle with an optical fiber in order to sense the strain experienced by the needle during its insertion into the human body. As a result, the shape and position of the needle inside the body can be monitored. This can be used in order to identify whether the needle penetrates correctly and whether it reached the epidural space.
