Effective Locomotion and Precise Unclogging Motion of an Untethered Flexible-Legged Magnetic Robot for Vascular Diseases

Abstract

We propose an untethered flexible-legged magnetic robot (FLMR) manipulated by an external rotating magnetic field (ERMF) to generate effective locomotion and precise unclogging motion to treat vascular diseases. The proposed FLMR is composed of a front body with a drill tip, a cylindrical permanent magnet, a rear body, and flexible legs. The flexible legs… (More)
