Strain-rate sensitivity of the rabbit MCL diminishes at traumatic loading rates.


This study was performed to determine whether the viscoelastic behavior of ligaments persists at high rates of loading, such as those associated with sports-related trauma or motor vehicle accidents. Medial collateral ligaments (MCLs) from 22 skeletally mature New Zealand White rabbits were tensile tested quasi-statically and via two impact conditions at… (More)
