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…
