Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0897682A1] The body (1) can be altered in shape in one or more directions. Shape and/or position of the body are varied by exerting variable tension or pressure on it via one or more actuating components (5), each of which can be joined to it. The component can be flexible but virtually non-elastic in the linear direction. It can be formed by a rope, and there can be several components acting on the body in different directions.
