Though these tumours represent 0.25% of an oncology practice, a proper understanding of the clinical course of(More)
Existing skin mechanical testing devices focus on measuring skin elasticity and are not tailored to assess the dynamic behavior of skin. The mathematical techniques used to analyze data collected using these devices are often not optimal. A new dynamic mechanical device that measures the linear dynamics of skin was developed and tested. The mechanical(More)
