Which then can transport medical supplies around the body acting like a capsule.

Adding the plates to the Millirobot helped it with better movement. Which was harder to pull of in the total soft designs.

The Original tests were done on a dead pig with simulated internal bleeding. The Millirobot was successful at creating a blood clot on the wound and help to seal. The design is still in the testing phase. However, it feels certain that the design will surely better than the ones already available.
