Conducting polymers: a bridge across the bionic interface

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Can these actuator devices operate as "artificial muscles" to produce human movement and even develop the superhuman abilities of Steve Austin, the "bionic man" on the TV series The Six-Million Dollar Manl Manipulating human movement is, of course, a mammoth task. In today's highly technological world, we still do not have adequate lightweight, low-powerconsumption materials or technologies that can be strapped on to assist in human movement (50).
