Nature inspired design: kinematic modelling of the seahorse tail

Author
Organization
Abstract
The seahorse has a highly specialised musculoskeletal structure. The seahorse tail combines high radial stiffness with ventral bending flexibility in a very interesting way. Obtaining a profound insight in the kinematics and mechanics involved in the tail bending holds the promise of applying the same techniques to biomedical applications that require high radial stiffness while maintaining flexibility.
