Fluid shear stress in trabecular bone marrow due to low-magnitude high-frequency vibration.


Low-magnitude high-frequency (LMHF) loading has recently received attention for its anabolic effect on bone. The mechanism of transmission of the anabolic signal is not fully understood, but evidence indicates that it is not dependent on bone matrix strain. One possible source of signaling is mechanostimulation of the cells in the bone marrow. We… (More)
