Robots movement depends on artificial actuators performances which can be impaired by actuators’ efficiency limits. Muscle cells can be used for fabricating bio-hybrid actuators, overcoming these limits. We present a 3D soft porous polyurethane scaffold with an interconnected network. To fully colonize it, we functionalized it with laminin and fibronectin, assessing muscle cells proliferation. These results are preparatory for the construction of a 3D bio-hybrid system for robotics applications.
