The goal of this project was to create an accurate model for skeletal muscle in vitro, with a specific focus to enable mechanical stimulation of the tissue. The project began by creating a list of functions, objectives, and constraints based upon a client needs statement. Conceptual designs were then created and tested for feasibility in order to select components of the final design. The final design includes both a device for mechanical stimulation as well as a method for producing tissue rings that can be placed onto the device.
