The mechanical properties of human skin are of great importance to predict skin doming in a shaver. Brokken [1] showed that among others the role of the different skin layers is important. The goal of this joint PhD-project by Eindhoven University of Technology and PCI is to determine the mechanical properties of different skin layers. Current knowledge suggests that this goal can be achieved by combining (existing) skin imaging methods with mechanical experiments. This literature review… Expand
Human skin in vivo : Overview of mechanical experiments and imaging techniques
Knowledge about the mechanical behaviour of the human skin can help to quantify the effectiveness of cosmetic products and to evaluate skin diseases and pressure sores. Besides that, informationExpand
Mechanical Behaviour of Skin: A Review
Objective: The mechanical behaviour or the Young’s Modulus of the skin is measured as a ratio of the stress applied to the skin in vitro or in vivo over the skin deformation. The Young’s Modulus ofExpand
Superficial skin damage and pressure sores due to skin loading
Pressure sores are localized areas of tissue breakdown in skin and/or underlying tissue. They are painful, difficult to treat, and represent a burden to the community in terms of health care andExpand

Burn-related Collagen Conformational Changes in ex vivo Porcine Skin using Raman Spectroscopy
TLDR
The overall spectra reveal that protein and amino acids-related bands have manifested structural changes including the destruction of protein-related functional groups, and transformation from α-helical to disordered structures which are correlated with increasing burn severity. Expand

Characterisation of Anisotropic and Non-linear Behaviour of Human Skin In Vivo.
TLDR
The structural skin model proposed by Lanir is employed and a mixed numerical-experimental method is developed, based on the confrontation of measured data from an experiment with calculated data from a finite element model, eventually leading to the determination of some of the parameters of a constitutive model. Expand
Age-related mechanical properties of human skin: an in vivo study.
TLDR
The results show that the skin maintains its thickness and extensibility up to the seventh decade as opposed to its elasticity or recovery capacities, which decrease from an early age. Expand
An in vivo method for measuring the mechanical properties of the skin using ultrasound.
TLDR
A new and original device called the "echorheometer", comprising a suction system with an ultrasound scanner that enables the simultaneous visualization and measurement of the deformation of skin structures in vivo, showed that the resistance to the applied vertical stress is essentially due to the dermis rather than the subcutaneous fat.

TLDR
The viscoelastic nature of the skin shows that a simple structural model based only on collagen and elastin is not adequate for a full understanding of this tissue. Expand
