A linear flexure bearing consists of an arrangement of vertically oriented flexure elements held into
place on the top and bottom by rectangular mounting blocks. It is intended to have linear travel with
a spring resistance to motion which acts as a self-centering feature. As one mounting block is held
stationary a horizontal force is applied to the other mounting block. The flexure elements then bend
in an s-shape curve allowing a relative horizontal displacement to occur between the two mounting blocks.
