Sum ma ryThe human hip joint is capable of carrying loads exceeding several times body weight The distribution of these loads over the load-bearing cartilage surfaces in the hip is of considerable interest in terms of studying the behavior of cartilage under various loading conditions. A modified Moore prosthesis has been designed which is capable of measuring in vivo the spatial and temporal pressure variations generated by the loads carried by the hip. The pressures as measured by this device will not only …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
