Soft Tunable Robots for Medical Applications

At the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, researchers have been working on novel soft robots that can have unique properties for various clinical applications. Specifically, the researchers want to use these on the human body, which is itself soft and doesn’t always play well with rigid devices. The muscle mimicking devices can stretch, as […] This post Soft Tunable Robots for Medical Applications appeared first on Medgadget.
