a Schematic diagram of the whole membrane covering the frame, showing the approximate scaling of the cells to the inner diameter of the frame. The details show microscopy images of a single paddle cell within the membrane, highlighting critical dimensions of the active elements (w = 3–12 µm). Magnetic cylinders appear as dark circles. b Schematic cross-section of experimental arrangement.
