Abstract

This paper investigates the surface adhesion characteristics required for a miniature mobile device to move around the abdominal cavity. Such a device must be capable of adhering to the tissue lining and move freely across the upper surface of the insufflated abdomen. Accordingly, the potential of utilising bioinspired solutions to facilitate wet adhesion is assessed.
