Dielectric elastomer artificial muscles are an emerging technology that possesses excellent actuation strain and energy density. Recent materials advances should allow these materials to match, or even surpass the performance of natural muscle for biomimetic robots and prosthetic devices. Various other electroactive polymers are also reviewed to aid in material selection and actuator design.
