Electroactive polymers

  1. Jun 6, 2005 #1
    Does anyone know of a standard recipe for making Electroactive polymer gels for prosthetic purposes. I have already made several samples, but none of them responds to the electric stimulation. It is supposed to changes its density or gets harder when exposed to an electric filed.

    Thx

    A suggest you search for "electrorheological fluids" and their applications in prosthetics. A similar class of materials are "magnetorheological fluids", which too see application in prosthetics.

    Also look into proceedings of the International Conference on Electrorheological Fluids.
