In the last few years, our scientists have done incredible work in the field of the development and transplantation of artificial limbs. Where a few days ago scientists have created such artificial muscles, which will function like a real natural muscle, now their next goal is to create artificial muscles that can lift about 650 times more weight than their own weight.
On the idea of making these types of muscles, three different research teams have submitted their work papers. In these papers, the research teams have given a description of their methods of accomplishing this project. These artificial muscles can be used in prosthetics, microbots and even smart textiles that respond to environmental changes.
Project Of All The Teams About Artificial Muscles Can Lift 650 Times Thier Own Weight
Massachusetts Institute of Technology: Mehmet Kanik and his research team created two-face polymer fiber, which was used to make artificial muscles, that are activated with heat and can lift 650 times more weight than their own weight. These muscles may face strains of more than 1,000%. In the starting stage, the researchers tested these muscles in an artificial biceps. When the heat was applied to it, it picked weight.
University of Bordeaux: In the paperwork submitted by Jinqi Yuan and his research team for this research, presented a micro engine, which is made of shaped memory nanocomposite fiber and is prepared to store energy. After a small change in temperature, energy can be released on demand.
University of Texas Dallas: Juke Mu and his team have mentioned a fiber in their paper, which is empowered by electrothermally sensitivity sheath, which encompasses the cheap material of coal like nylon and bamboo. These muscles made of materials have 40 times more contraction power than human muscles.
The work of these three teams of researchers can bring many significant changes in different areas including prosthetics and apparel. But still, it will take some time before the artificial muscles will be used for humans.
So this is everything about the new artificial muscles that can lift about 650 times more weight them their own weight. Hopefully, very soon they will be available for humans. And if you any questions or confusion regarding these muscles, so you can ask us in the comments section.
