Compliant mechanisms are flexible devices that transform an input force to a displacement through elastic deformation. Advantages of using compliant mechanisms are that they are monolithic devices that contain flexible members that can undergo large deflection, have fewer joints, have increased reliability, increased precision and have fewer components compared to rigid-body mechanisms.
