:: Ras Labs Synthetic MuscleTM
Synthetic muscle, developed by Ras Labs, controllably contracts and expands. Currently synthetic muscle is being used to prototype rotational actuation for the US Army. Linked actuation is also being prototyped. The Ras Labs mission is to use synthetic muscle to make prosthetics, particularly for the hand and arm, that work, feel, and appear human.
