New Flexible Electronics Research Shows Promise for Spinal Therapies

New Flexible Electronics Research Shows Promise for Spinal Therapies

Patients recovering from spinal cord injuries or who have mobility disorders related to spinal nerve compression are frequently treated by the conditioning of the Hoffmann's reflex via non-surgical electrostimulation therapy. To track the progress of the treatment, electromyography is used to record the amplitude of the patient's muscle twitch response.

Soft Robot Actuators Heal Themselves

Soft Robot Actuators Heal Themselves

Repeated activity wears on soft robotic actuators, but these machines' moving parts need to be reliable and easily fixed. Now a team of researchers has a biosynthetic polymer, patterned after squid ring teeth, that is self-healing and biodegradable, creating a material not only good for actuators, but also for hazmat suits and other applications where tiny holes could cause a danger.

Biogel for Soft Electronics Developed

Biogel for Soft Electronics Developed

Researchers introduce an elastic material made out of a non-polluting mix of gelatin and other edible ingredients. What is so special about the new bio-gel? It is elastic, flexible and easy to bend as well as sufficiently stable, allowing it to be combined with electronic components. This discovery forges new paths in the development of soft robotics.

New Electronic Material for Wearables and Soft Robots

New Electronic Material for Wearables and Soft Robots

Imagine a flexible digital screen that heals itself when it cracks, or a light-emitting robot that locates survivors in dark, dangerous environments or carries out farming and space exploration tasks. A novel material developed could turn these ideas into reality.
