Variability in strain distribution in the mice tibia loading model: A preliminary study using digital volume correlation

  The study of bone remodeling, how bone tissue changes over time due to the activity of bone cells, is fundamental for the better understanding of musculoskeletal diseases and to design new treatments. Bone adapts to external loading and exercise can be used to stimulate the formation of new tissue in order to strengthen the bones.  Animal studies on small roden...
