Characterizations of Biomechanical Properties. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, July 2009, Pages: 116
Pigs, mice and human beings are all vertebrate mammals. More than 90% of genomes in pigs and mice are the same as human beings. Experiment pigs and mice are with advantages in purebloods, small size, high reproductive capacity and short life cycle, etc. The tissue structure and metabolism of physiology in pig and mice are similar to human as well. Therefore, laboratory pigs and mice are often used to substitute human beings for biomedical engineering test. The research topics of this book are in the area of biomechanical properties of bones in mammal. The objectives of the study are to reveal the biomechanical properties of various types of bones and discuss its implication to human development. The mechanism of diseases (such as osteoporosis, craniosynostosis, etc.) and the complexity of patterns in human cranial sutures in different age groups are also discussed.
