Abstract:Rubin et al. [J. Biomechanics 23, 43-54 (1990)] proposed that high frequency bone strains in the 15-30 Hz range might have significant influence on the morphological adaptation of bone tissue. We sought to further their findings by determining the magnitude of high frequency strains during various activities. We measured strains in the forelimbs of dogs during walking, standing and with their limbs unweighted. As negative controls, we measured strains while the dogs were tranquilized and after sacrifice. Strai…
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
