An Overview of Factors Affecting the Skin ’ s Young ’ s Modulus

Skin is the outermost layer of the human body which regulates the body temperature and protects the body from abrasion and water loss. The Young’s Modulus of skin is measured as a ratio of the stress applied to the skin in vitro or in vivo over the skin deformation. Skin is found to be highly anisotropic and Young’s Modulus is found to be dependent on… (More)
