In recent years, bioinspired lightweight design has become a high priority in technology. An important source is the musculoskeletal system, which achieves a light construction by the interplay of different effects, which have the aim of minimizing bending stresses. In this paper the potentials for technology and the challenges for a transfer are discussed using kinematic chains as an example. An iterative approach is presented, which represents a solution to integrate the simultaneous optimization process of the musculoskeletal system into the technical product development process.
