Electromagnetically Responsive Soft-Flexible Robots and Sensors for Biomedical Applications and Impending Challenges

Abstract

Advantages of flexible polymer materials with developments in refined magnetic actuation can be intertwined for a promising platform to work on a resilient, adaptable manipulator aimed at a range of biomedical applications. Moreover, soft magnetic material has an inherent property of high remanence like the permanent magnets which can be further refined to meet ever-increasing demands in untethered and safe-regulated medical environments. In this chapter, we focus mostly on different avenues and facets of flexible polymer materials in adaptable actuation and sensing in the context of magnetic field for range of biomedical applications.
