From the macroscopic mechanical deformation of skin to the feeling of touch is a chain of complex events whereby information is converted from one form to another between different scales. An important link in this chain is receptor activation, which requires incorporation of microanatomical, cellular and ion channel transduction models. Of particular… (More)
Incompressibility, nonlinear deformation under stress and viscoelasticity are the ngerprint of soft tissue mechanical behavior. In order to model soft tissues appropriately, we must pursue to complete these requirements. In this work we revisited diierent soft tissue quasi-linear model possibilities in trying to achieve for this commitment.
