Smart implantable biomedical textiles with sensing functions are of increasing interest because they address the shortcoming that conventional medical devices have repair functions but lack of sensing ability. However, the evaluation of such devices before practical applications is hampered by high cost and/or animal ethics. Soft bioreactors on humanoid robots open up a new pathway for assessing their performances by closely mimicking both the body biomechanics and the physiological environment.
