This paper describes a technique and apparatus for measuring the compressive modulus of articular cartilage under physiological loading rates. The compressive modulus is the most relevant property to the primary function of articular cartilage i.e., load carriage. It has been determined previously from measurement of cartilage deformation under slow or almost static loading conditions. The modulus was based on deformations occurring 2 s after the initial application of load which greatly… CONTINUE READING
