Wow, learned a lot here. It's clear the potential of artificial muscles in addressing the challenges of facial paralysis is truly transformative. Your exploration of non-invasive options using DEAs showcases a promising future for post-paralysis treatments--especially considering the psychosocial impacts, this could be life-changing for many.  Kudos on this innovative approach and looking forward to seeing its clinical implications!

Thank you !
