Measuring Muscle Movement with Magnets


MIT Media Lab,  56.1K subscribers


Nearly all movement in the animal kingdom is driven by muscles, but can we more accurately measure how our muscles move during natural activity? Researchers at MIT Media Lab have validated that a strategy for tracking muscle movement can do that — track muscle motion outside the lab environment with through the use of implanted magnetic beads. These particular magnetic beads are also biocompatible, necessary for applying this technology toward improved control over prostheses and exoskeletons.... '
