Customer Question

Can is there a micro-electromagnet that is strong enough to pull a human forearm towards a bicep? If so, would the effects of that magnetic, if shielded, also have a probably of being harmful to a person?

Hi welcometo just answer.I am not sure about this but will do some research and get back to you. Would be available for a phone call? I would like to understand more the nature of the problem.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the nature of the problem that I am trying to solve has to do with the strength or electromagnet in relationship to their size and what affects a magnetic can have on the human body. For what I have seen, the power of an electromagnet seems to be related to its size (like the ones in a vehicle wrecking yard). I am interested the scalability to powerful magnets. In other words, how small can an electromagnet be and still maintain a force strong enough to move or influence body parts?

Ok you are trying to create a hand action using electromagnet?

Yes- in a way. So for instance- if I have two electromagnets- one on the forearm and the other on the upper arm, I want to coordinate the electromagnets to attract or repulse to move or influence the elbow joint.

Something similar to this might work. Two of these with opposite polarity will attract and changing polarity on one of these will push apart
