Ras Labs makes synthetic muscle. Lenore Rasmussen, PhD, is CEO of Ras Labs. Her brother is a disabled American veteran. In our current conflicts, 90 % of injured soldiers survive, but at great cost. The percentage of amputees returning home is the highest since the Civil War. Most electroactive polymers bend – ours contract and expand. We own the patents for this transformational technology. The Ras Labs mission is to use synthetic muscle to make prosthetics that work, feel, and appear human.
