Artificial Muscle

Rediscover the sense of TOUCH

Touch is one of our most important senses. Yet this sensation is absent from most consumer electronics (CE) devices; a deficiency accentuated by the emergence of touchscreens. Even on a glass screen, a button should look like a button, sound like a button, and feel like a button to give the user full sensory awareness that everything works properly. Touchscreens and other user interfaces with immediate and meaningful tactile feedback will improve the usability and appeal of CE devices.

Artificial Muscle, Inc. (AMI) is the leading technology developer, designer, and manufacturer of actuator and sensing components based on a proprietary technology platform called Electroactive Polymer Artificial Muscle (EPAM). EPAM technology offers significant advantages over traditional technologies used to provide movement. It is much lighter, smaller, quieter, more responsive, and durable than competing alternatives. The form factor is versatile and simple to integrate in virtually any end market product where actuation is required. However, we have focused our efforts on the overwhelming need for awareness through touch (haptics) in the market for consumer electronics.

Our Reflex™ brand products are the only actuators on the market capable of creating "real feel" – a limitless array of genuine touch sensations. AMI delivers a more complete and fulfilling user experience with high fidelity haptics.
