The quasi-static response of bulk muscular tissue to indentation was measured on the posterior lower legs of living human subjects. No residual limbs were tested; all subjects had intact lower limbs. For loads up to 7.0 N on an 8.0 mm diameter flat-tipped indentor, the response was repeatable without prior 'preconditioning'. The data at any test location exhibited substantial random scatter, but did not trend up or down with repeated cycles. At these limited loads (< 7.0 N), hysteresis was… CONTINUE READING
