Strain Measurement on Soft Tissue

Biomechanics place huge challenges on existing measurement technologies for determining the mechanical properties of these materials, as well as just measuring the full-field displacement and strain of these materials. GOM´s advanced full-field imaging method using 3D image correlation photogrammetry is being used for measuring the tremendous variations in real biological mechanical systems such as bones, tendons, ligaments, and even tissues such as blood vessels. This measurement method has far greater dynamic range than other full-field imaging technologies, making these measurements possible.
