Pneumatic Actuator works like human muscle.

Type MAS Fluidic Muscle uses material deformation and flexure to achieve linear motion. Basic concept involves wrapping flexible hose with non-elastic fibers arranged in rhomboidal fashion. This results in 3D grid pattern. When compressed air is introduced into system, grid pattern is deformed, pulling force is generated in axial direction, and muscle shortens. Range includes 10, 20 and 40 mm...
