Biomechanical behavior of plantar fat pad in healthy and degenerative foot conditions

Abstract

The plantar fat pad of the human foot is a specific tissue made up of adipose chambers enveloped by fibrous septa. Aging, pathology or trauma may affect its histo-morphological configuration and mechanical response. The correlation between histo-morphological configuration and mechanical properties is analyzed by a computational approach, aiming to identify… (More)
