The axial and radial compressive moduli of the human meniscus are important material properties in tibiofemoral joint models, but they have not been determined previously for fresh-frozen tissue. Our goals were to measure the moduli at equilibrium and at a physiological strain rate, to determine whether the axial and radial compressive moduli are equal for each type of loading, and to determine whether they depend on the region (i.e., anterior, middle, posterior) of the meniscus.
