Various mechanical forces produce a variable stimulus intensity on bone and have different effects on its growth and development. The aim of this project was to study the effects of a variety of mechanical forces on human humerus morphology. This was investigated by measuring the cortical thickness (cm) and diameter (cm) of the humerus at its proximal… (More)
