Paper Title:
Towards Biocompatible Sensing Devices: An IPMC Based Artificial Vestibular System
  Abstract

In this work the design and realization of an artificial vestibular system demonstrator is presented. The whole system is biologically inspired to the human vestibular apparatus. The mototransduction capabilities of ionomeric polymer-metal composite (IPMC) have been used in order to develop the prototype [1]. The reported results are the starting point to the future design and development of a miniaturized artificial vestibular system, integrating biocompatible materials and all-organic electronic devices [2].
