Rehabilitation therapy is an important aspect of recovery after volumetric muscle loss. However, the traditional rehabilitation approach involves a period of rest and passive loading followed by gradual active loading. Extracellular matrix is a naturally occurring material consisting of structural proteins that provide mechanical strength, structural support, and functional molecules with diverse bioactive properties. There is evidence to suggest that the addition of aggressive regenerative… CONTINUE READING
