We hypothesize that when a broad spectrum of bone strain is considered, strain history is similar for different bones in different species. Using a data collection protocol with a fine resolution, mid-diaphyseal strains were measured in vivo for both weightbearing and non-weightbearing bones in three species: dog, sheep, and turkey, with strain information collected continuously while the animals performed their natural daily activities. The daily strain history was quantified by both counting… CONTINUE READING
