  • The tensile properties of the supraspinatus tendon were investigated in 11 shoulders from fresh cadavers. The tendon was divided into three longitudinal strips: anterior, middle, and posterior. Each specimen was mounted on a materials testing machine, with four fluorescent markers placed on both surfaces of the tendon strip. The positions of these markers were recorded during the test by two synchronized video cameras. Load‐deformation and strain curves were determined, and the stress‐strain… CONTINUE READING
