Paper Abstract

It is well-known that electrically controllable soft actuators can be formed by using the composite composed of ionic-conductive polymer electrolyte membranes and precious metals such as platinum or gold. The response of the polymer electrolyte actuator is quick and soft. This paper describes the preparing method of the composites, the principle of the electric response, the response kinetics of the composite, and the medical application of the polymer actuator.
