... settlement, juvenile snapping shrimp develop an elastic mechanism that allows them to generate ultrafast strikes, cavitation bubbles and the highest recorded accelerations for underwater, repeated-use movements. Latch-mediated spring actuation Development Alpheidae Alpheus heterochaelis LaMSA...

... shifts in muscle-spring tuning in systems using latch-mediated spring actuation (LaMSA). We hypothesized that variation in jumping performance would result from increased force capacity in muscles and relatively stiffer elastic structures, resulting in greater energy storage. To test this, we...

...’ that provides energy into the latch/spring (LaMSA) trap-jaw mechanism. Contraction of this muscle in the latched-open chelicerae of Zearchaea pitches the chelicerae back, thereby stretching the clypeal ligaments and storing energy into the ‘spring’ for the ultra-fast strike ( Fig. 4 G). I hypothesize...

... and release of elastic energy from the spring is only now being elucidated. Here, we critically examine the metrics and concepts of power amplification and encourage a framework centered on latch-mediated spring actuation (LaMSA). We emphasize approaches and metrics of LaMSA systems that will forge a pathway...
