Application Ideas: Integrated system of self-repairing modules and waste transport. Building with modularity to accommodate repair, replacement. Develop remodeling polymer actuators for use in prosthetics and robotics by integrating systems into existing self-repairing polymers that facilitate transport of necessary components and removal of waste products.
