Abstract

Lanyon et al. suggested that bone adapts to a change in bone strain distribution rather than strain magnitude. If true, then correlations between load history and bone response must be made using strain distribution calculations, rather than principal strain measurements. However, strain distribution calculations rely on assumptions that may be invalid for bone as it behaves in living animals. This work tests the validity of strain distribution calculations using in vivo strain measurements.
