Strain rate is implemented as a stimulus for surface bone remodeling. Using idealized models for trabecular bone structures, the surface remodeling predictions using the strain rate as the stimulus are compared with the predictions using the peak strain magnitude as the stimulus. For a uniaxially loaded cruciform shape, the comparison shows that the two(More)
The primary method for assessing fracture risk in osteoporosis relies primarily on measurement of bone mass. Estimation of fracture risk is most often evaluated using logistic or proportional hazards models. Notwithstanding the success of these models, there is still much uncertainty as to who will or will not suffer a fracture. This has led to a search for(More)
BACKGROUND Morphological and geometric differences between male and female feet can be the decisive factor of whether well-fitting, functional, and comfortable footwear is available for both men and women. METHODS Optical scans, plaster wrap casts, and a set of manual measurements from the right feet of 51 female participants, aged 20 to 59 years (32 +/-(More)
