Bio-inspired products are also being developed that are based on the natural biology and systems of the human body. One such product is the newest generation of prosthetic leg that incorporates the way tendons and joints affect limb flexure and movement, resulting in movement just like a real leg.
Sharkskin, which keeps itself remarkably free of bacteria, is another source of bio-inspiration. Material has been created that mimics the bacteria-repelling, microscopic, diamond-shaped bumps on the sharkskin surface. This material is being tested for use on hospital surfaces to prevent bacteria from binding.
Now, Biotrue® multi-purpose solution draws inspiration from the biology of the eyes giving you a lens care experience like no other.
