The addition of simple porous fabric layers to electrorheological fluid activated clutches is demonstrated to improve, and in some cases more than double the available operating torque, whilst slightly reducing the EHT supply current requirements. The use of this technique in other devices such as actuators, flexible joints, controllable compliant surfaces etc. is also been found to be essential in preventing electrical breakdown
