Athletic tape that tracks your moves

Check out wireless optical stretch sensors in action in this video. We embedded a strain-sensitive elastic optical fiber into a piece of sticky, stretchy athletic tape that can track muscle stretching in real time. There is a single “U-turn” shaped fiber along with a detachable wireless module that can also collect acceleration and orientation data. With the addition of the optical strain sensor, our system can detect whether a muscle is passive or weight-bearing.
