The innovative principle of the fluidic muscle

The fluidic muscle is a diaphragm contraction system, or to put it more simply, a tube that contracts under pressure. This innovation is based on a tensile material consisting of a flexible tube reinforced with fibres in the form of a rhomboidal mesh. The usable tensile force is at its maximum at the start of the contraction and then decreases in a virtually linear manner as a function of the stroke.
