This thesis explores the design and characterization of a hydrostatic actuator for use in magnetic imaging resonance (MRI) environments. Using a simple fluid flow architecture, the thesis proves the feasibility of using hydrostatic actuators for MRI actuation and lays the theoretical groundwork for further development of hydrostatic actuation for use in creating more complicated hydrostatic systems.
