Abstract: This paper presents and discusses a flexible, polymer-based, novel microchannel fluidic joint (MFJ) that is driven by a pressurized working fluid. The MFJ has been designed for being used in biomedical applications in the future. The MFJ actuating system has two degrees of freedom and implements a unique 3-channel design. In this paper, a prototype of the proposed MFJ is presented along with its manufacturing procedure. Measurements related to the MFJ displacements are presented and a simplified fitting exponential equation is proposed to describe the relationship between MFJ deformation and the working fluid pressure. Performance of the proposed device and its potential future applications are discussed.
