Microrobots can make a great impact in medical applications such as minimally-invasive surgery, screening and diagnosis of diseases, targeted therapy and drug delivery. Small-sized bio-inspired robots can mimic flagellar propulsion mechanisms of microorganisms for actuation in microfluidic environments, which are dominated by viscous forces. Microorganisms propel themselves by means of the motion of their flagella such as rotation of rigid helices or travelling planar waves on flexible tails… CONTINUE READING
