3D-printed soft robotics to simulate popliteal artery endovascular treatment

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is one of the most frequent cardiovascular diseases, affecting over 200 million people at an annual cost of $21 billion.PAD cases are predominately (80%) located within the popliteal artery, a highly flexible vessel behind the knee joint which twists, extends, and bends during standing, walking, and sitting.As a result, active or sedentary lifestyles play an important role in altering the biomechanics leading to popliteal diseases.Furthermore, surgical treatments within the popliteal artery have been inconsistent, with a …

Soft and self-powered robotic skin

The sense of touch is one of the most important ways to:discover the environmentdifferentiate soft and hard surfacesoperate delicate objects.Our research group has successfully fabricated a new class of soft tactile sensors that combines the electroluminescence and photo-sensing modes of multifunctional diodes with a flexible elastomer capable of creating intelligent skin. Using this approach, we now aim to integrate this technology with modern medical, social and industrial robots.In this project you'll investigate the development of a flexible and stretchable smart …
