Artificial muscle: facts and fiction

MC Schaub
2011 Swiss Medical Weekly  
The development of artificial muscle on the basis of nitinol wires is still in its infancy. The nitinol artificial muscle will have to prove its viability in the various clinical settings.  ...  Force development by the nitinol device cannot be smoothly regulated as in natural muscle.  ...  To call these devices "artificial muscles" is, however, a euphemism if not a misnomer. Besides limited mechanical support the artificial nitinol muscles have nothing in common with natural muscles.  ...
