The combination of fiber Bragg grating arrays integrated in a soft plastic tube is promising for high resolution manometry (HRM) where pressure measurements are done with high spatial resolution. The application as a medical device and in vivo experiments have to be anticipated by characterization with a measurement setup that simulates natural conditions. Good results are achieved with a pressure chamber which applies a well-defined pressure with a soft tubular membrane. It is shown that the proposed catheter design reaches accuracies down to 1 mbar and 1 cm.
