The intention of this article is to introduce and overview Pneumatic Artificial Muscles (PAMs). The construction of PAMS mainly consist of flexible, inflatable membranes, having orthotropic material behaviour. The main properties shaping the PAMs will be explained in terms of their load-carrying capacity and low weight in assembly. Discussion on their designs and capacity to function as locomotion device in robotics applications will be laid out, followed by viewpoint on the materials and strength models, concluded by some future directions in this research work.
