Current ultrasound methods for measuring myocardial strain are often limited to measurements in one or two dimensions. Cardiac motion and deformation however are truly 3-D. With the introduction of matrix transducer technology, 3-D ultrasound imaging of the heart has become feasible but suffers from low temporal and spatial resolution, making 3-D strain(More)
—The human knee joint is a complex joint of the human body that experiences large loads. The knee stability is mainly ensured by four major ligaments, which all play vital roles to enable a proper joint articulation. As such, the interactions between the mechanical loading in these ligaments needs to be taken into account in order to obtain an adequate(More)
PURPOSE Muscles are the primary component responsible for the locomotion and change of posture of the human body. The physiologic basis of muscle force production and movement is determined by the muscle architecture (maximum muscle force, [Formula: see text], optimal muscle fiber length, [Formula: see text], tendon slack length, [Formula: see text], and(More)
The knee is a complex joint of the human body that supports large loads in both static and dynamic postures. It is mainly ensured by four major ligaments, which all play vital roles in enabling a proper joint articulation. As such, the interactions between the mechanical loadings in these ligaments need to be taken into account in order to obtain an(More)
