The objective of this study was to determine the biomechanical properties of cartilage grown in a hollow-fiber bioreactor and their correlation with biochemical properties and magnetic resonance images (MRT). Engineered/grown cartilage has been shown to be a useful resource for cartilage repair [5]. The integrity and functional strength of engineered tissues are reflected in their biomechanical properties. A better understanding of the biomechanical properties of engineered cartilage can benefit us when designing a system to grow cartilage.
