Elastic polymer materials are widely used as they can be easily stretched or squeezed, and bounce back to their original shape. However, the fabricated product shape is permanent without reconfiguration ability, lacking auto-fitting properties. NAMI’s eMuscle is thus developed to produce various kinds of products with auto fitting, tensioning and fixation functions.
As a Materials Expert, Nano and Advanced Materials Institute (NAMI) has a strong portfolio of innovative technologies to support and collaborate with the industry, offering frontier-applied research on advanced materials as well as technology transfer for commercialization success.
NAMI, incorporated in 2006, is designated by the Innovation and Technology Commission of the Hong Kong Government as a Research and Development Center for nanotechnology and advanced materials. NAMI undertakes and provides support for market-driven research in nanotechnology and advanced materials, and strives for commercialization of the technologies to benefit the industry and the society at large, as well as re-industrialization to promote the economic growth and sustainability of Hong Kong.
