Artificial Electromagnetic Muscle Tissue

01/16/2015 11:07 PM

Is anyone developing a iron based elasto polymer with conductive liquid windings that can be shaped into muscles for human prothectics. . Would like to speak Dean Kamen.. I believe I can make better hands and feet that can move like real muscles and have smooth fluid motion like the real thing.. I believe I can perfect this..

If you give away a few more hints, maybe somebody else might start working on it.

Ziggy,

A truly inventive person would have an idea how to contact someone.

"As an inventor, he holds more than 440 U.S. and foreign patents, many of them for innovative medical devices that have expanded the frontiers of health care worldwide.

He founded DEKA Research & Development Corporation to develop internally generated inventions as well as to provide research and development for major corporate clients."

E-mail him at:

That would have been so when I could see but something happened last year to change that. I know what im trying to create I even know how the final product will work. But I need a 3 medium 3d printer that can print the iron based polymer and the insulated coils for the liquid conductor and it connecions. To make it.. And It will work Im sure of it. Refer me to the right people 919 356 3946.. This is but a peace to a much bigger very ambitious product..

You seem to be quite willing to "honk" your own horn here.

No matter how creative/excellent/inventive you say you are, people are not going to be calling you offering help when all you've done is say you are an excellent fabricator with a (in your opinion) good idea.

Now, exceed our expectations of you and contact Mr. Kanem at the site I provided you.

Just put a really small motor in the middle of two rubber bands and wind them up like one of those balsa wood airplanes.

That's the way our muscles work, opposing muscles stretch back out contracted muscle groups.

With DC motors the energy needed would be lowered by the fact that when contracted motor muscles turned backwards they would recharge the battery.
