Muscular forces generated during locomotion depend on an animal's speed, gait, and size and underlie the energy demand to power locomotion. Changes in limb posture affect muscle forces by altering the mechanical advantage of the ground reaction force (R) and therefore the effective mechanical advantage (EMA = r/R, where r is the muscle mechanical advantage)(More)
This study was designed to compare skin wound healing in three groups of Wistar rats: normal, genetically diabetic, and streptozotocin-induced diabetic. All diabetic animals received daily insulin. Full-thickness midline dorsal skin wounds were analyzed biomechanically for strength, toughness, and elasticity (Young's modulus) at 1 and 3 weeks after(More)
This study was designed to evaluate biomechanically defined wound healing in full-thickness skin explants in tissue culture. The requirement for preculture incubation of wounds in situ was characterized. Full-thickness skin incisions were made in 44 rats and closed immediately. Wounds were incubated in situ for 0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, or 96 hours before(More)
