Product description

What is presented?

The biomimetic approach that led to the development of the novel strain-stiffening structures from elastic materials is presented on a touch display terminal. Additionally, demonstrator structures are provided.

What is special?

Elastic materials with the novel structure are able to show at the same time reversible and rate independent strain-stiffening behavior in the case of an elongation of the structure.

What are the potentials?

The novel structure might replace rigid plastic or metal parts in orthoses, as they provide flexibility up to a certain degree of deformation, but show solid behavior at further deformations. Additionally, the structure might be suitable to constrain degrees of freedom in soft robotic systems.
