APP42: Low-Power, Low-Leakage Microvalve

Project ID APP42

Start Date NO START DATE RECORDED
Last Updated Thu 2004-Aug-26 16:35:27
Abstract Design a valve suitable for integration into a portable, wearable microfluidic device. Wearable microfluidic devices have a very limited supply of working fluid and the use of this fluid must be very tightly budgeted to increase the life of the system. Microvalves incorporated into this system must have incredibly low leakage rates to reduce wasted fluid by increasing the precision that fluid is distributed to other parts of the system. Additionally, due to the meager amount of energy available from the system battery, the valves must have very low power consumption.
