Experimental evidence suggests that cells are extremely sensitive to their mechanical environment and react directly to mechanical stimuli. At present, it is technically difficult to measure fluid pressure, stress, and strain in cells, and to determine the time-dependent deformation of chondrocytes. For this reason, there are no data in the published literature that show the dynamic behavior of chondrocytes in articular cartilage. Similarly, the dynamic chondrocyte mechanics have not been… CONTINUE READING
