Abstract
Elastomers have been used in a variety of biomedical fields, including tissue engineering, soft robotics, prostheses, and cosmetics. Elastomers used for skin grafting scaffolds tend to be biodegradable, but other applications require perdurable elastomers. Advances in perdurable elastomers would allow for the development of a range of substrates useful in the creation of joint prostheses, chronic neural electrodes, implantables, and wearables. Still, for these, tailored mechanical properties and...
