Mechanical properties and Young's modulus of human skin in vivo

Abstract

The mechanical properties of the in vivo dermis were measured by means of a torque applied to the skin. The resulting deformation of 2–6°, including the immediate and delayed visco-elastic components, as well as the relaxation were measured, and the raw values corrected for a constant skin thickness. The experiment performed on 138 individuals from 3 to 89… (More)
