Researchers say printed micromachines could be used in smart prostheses

08/8/2013 | United Press International

Printing biocompatible micromachines onto polymer membranes could be used to improve bionic limbs and make smart prostheses, according to researchers at Tel Aviv University. Prostheses could be manufactured to be safer, more comfortable and perform more efficiently with the use of microelectromechanical systems made with polymer membranes, researchers said. Currently, micromachines, which are used in many consumer electronics such as smartphones and cameras, are made from silicon, which isn't biocompatible.
