Abstract

Discretized surface strains for human tendon and fascia were photogrammetrically determined with high-speed cinematography and were displayed topographically using three-dimensional computer graphics. Substantial differences were found between estimates of tissue strain measured from grip motion versus discretized strain estimates from highspeed films. The computer-generated contour maps also provide a useful technique for analyzing the nonhomogeneity of tendon and fascial strains during high rate tests.
