Analysis of deformation characteristics of excised human vocal folds by optical stereo-triangulation


for clinical treatment of voice disorders understanding of biomechanics of the voice producing parts in the human larynx is essential. an experimental setup is suggested to determine the deformations of the human vocal folds by inducing defined forces. in a static tensile test forces are applied to the fold of an excised human hemi-larynx. the resulting… (More)
