Design and development of a novel biostretch apparatus for tissue engineering.

Abstract

A uniaxial cyclic stretch apparatus is designed and developed for tissue engineering research. The biostretch apparatus employs noncontact electromagnetic force to uniaxially stretch a rectangular Gelfoam or RTV silicon scaffold. A reliable controller is implemented to control four stretch parameters independently: extent, frequency, pattern, and duration… (More)
