This notice is for Steven Mathers. I have been unable to get any mail
through to you.
Sorry about that, anyways, here is my mail to you...
Hi there. I too am interested in artificial limbs. I am currently
working on a material for use in an upper limb prosthetic device.
My research led me too an article:
Electrochemically Driven Muscle Like Actuators
IEEE Ninth Annual Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology
P. Chiarelli, G.Genuini, and D.De Rossi
This is the only article that I have found so far. If you receive any
information at all, please forward it to me. Also, if there is anything
else that I can provide for you, please let me know.
(Just as an aside, look into Shape Memory Alloys, or NiTinol...)
Systems Design Engineering
University of Waterloo
