Abstract

A system composed of a laser micrometer, a rotational assembly, and the LabView data acquisition system was designed, validated and applied to measure cross-sectional areas in rat Achilles tendon. Problems using the system were mainly related to the centering of the tendon in the rotational center of the translation assembly. Maintaining the tendon at the center point of the system was solved with the fabrication of a centering device which provides tendon stabilization and position adjustment. Use of the system in rat aging study demonstrated the importance of reporting material properties. Although maximum force was not found to be different with age, tendon strength and modulus were significantly reduced.
