Biomaterials & Polymers

Biomaterials and electroactive polymers are designed to interact with or potentially replace various biological systems. Constructs such as contact lenses, actuators or sensors have been implemented to alter the physiology or performance of systems and therefore require a level of compliance to prevent damage or irritation or mimic the mechanics of a system. Aurora Scientific assists researchers in improving these materials by producing instruments that facilitate the study of the mechanical properties of these materials and how they are able to mimic the characteristics of a natural system.
