Description
Achilles tendon ruptures are common and costly, and more than 50% heal unsuccessfully. Tendons respond to mechanical load over time and loading is fundamental for good mechanical performance. However, the regulatory mechanisms are still largely unknown. The main objective of this proposal is to clarify how intact and ruptured healing Achilles tendons are responding to mechanical load. The hypothesis is that the underlying mechanisms can be elucidated through an advanced multimodal approach that combines novel experimental and numerical models across several length scales to clarify the distinct adaptive response of elastic and viscoelastic mechanical behaviour. ...
