a 3D CAD sketch of the miniaturized biomechatronics device containing an interchangeable muscle fiber chamber to fit onto a stage of a multiphoton microscope. A force transducer and voice coil actuator pin are connected to a horizontal trough, each fabricated from cannula needles to take up a single muscle fiber (d). b photograph of the engineered device which is inserted in between two objective lenses to record forward scattered SHG, while the custom-made biomechatronics software runs on a parallel computer (c, d)

Microscope measures muscle weakness

Now it will be possible to assess muscle function using a new system developed at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. Biologists have developed a system called MechaMorph...
