An alternative mechanical parameter for assessing the viability of articular cartilage.

Abstract:

This paper is a sequel to previously published findings showing that mechanical indentation alone cannot clearly discriminate between normal and degraded articular cartilage. Consequently, the structural elasticity potential Rc = epsilon r/sigma i, which combines indentation stress sigma i with near-instantaneous rebound epsilon r following unloading, is hypothesized as a potential cartilage assessment parameter, which arguably measures the integrity of the collagen fibre-proteoglycan entrapm...
