This paper presents a method for detecting the mechanical stiffness of micro-metric biological tissues by means of compliance tests performed with a MEMS-Technology based microgripper. Thanks to an actuating rotary comb drive working in cooperation with another sensing rotary comb drive, the system is able to recognize the tissue sample stiffness. Such characterization is possible thanks to a proper control system that is applied to the whole mechanical structure.

Abstract

This paper presents a method for detecting the mechanical stiffness of micro-metric biological tissues by means of compliance tests performed with a MEMS-Technology based microgripper. Thanks to an actuating rotary comb drive working in cooperation with another sensing rotary comb drive, the system is able to recognize the tissue sample stiffness. Such characterization is possible thanks to a proper control system that is applied to the whole mechanical structure.
