The design and validation of a magnetic resonance imaging–compatible device for obtaining mechanical properties of plantar soft tissue via gated acquisition
The hydraulic plantar soft tissue reducer (HyPSTER) was designed to measure in vivo, rate-dependent plantarsoft tissue compressive force and three-dimensional deformations to help understand, predict, and prevent ulcer formation.
Optimization of nonlinear hyperelastic coefficients for foot tissues using a magnetic resonance imaging deformation experiment.
This investigation focused on the creation of a novel three-dimensional finite element model of the forefoot with multiple soft tissue layers (skin, fat pad, and muscle) and the development of an inverse finite element procedure that would allow for the optimization of the nonlinear elastic coefficients used to define the material properties of the skin muscle and fat pad tissue layers of the Forefoot based on a Ogden hyperelastic constitutive model.
Mechanical properties of the heel pad: current theory and review of the literature
Influence of the Calcaneus Shape on the Risk of Posterior Heel Ulcer Using 3D Patient-Specific Biomechanical Modeling
Simulations show that the shape of the calcaneus has an influence on the formation of pressure ulcers with a mean variation of the maximum strain over 6.0 percentage points over 18 distinct morphologies.
Biomechanical behaviour of heel pad tissue experimental testing, constitutive formulation, and numerical modelling
This paper deals with the constitutive formulation of heel pad tissue and presents a procedure for identifying constitutive parameters using experimental data, with the aim of developing a
