Arthritis is a chronic disease which causes disability around the world. There are many types arthritis and osteoarthritis is the most common and is associated with the development of degeneration in the network of collagen fibres and proteoglycan (Broom 1982). However, relatively there has been little study of the role of the collagen fibres on the biomechanics of articular cartilage. The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between the collagen network and mechanical properties of… CONTINUE READING
