... are needed to assist tissue engineering researchers as they embark on this process. The necessary multidisciplinary expertise covering micromechanical design, mechatronics, viscoelasticity, tissue culture, and human ergonomics is not necessarily available to all research teams. Therefore, the challenge...

.... Magnetic resonance (MR) elastography is a promising noninvasive method to quantitatively measure the viscoelastic properties of biological tissue. We developed a new quasi-static actuation system with the spatial modulation of magnetization (SPAMM) imaging pulse sequence. The MR compatible actuation system...

... such that existing equipment is not optimized for the necessary range of forces and displacements. In this paper, we describe a new device for determining viscoelastic material properties of small biologic specimens and show early results from its use. The mechanical design, control system, and theoretical...

The measurement of tissue compliance and the viscoelastic properties as a function of loading parameters was also demonstrated. Findings of this study suggest that this device offers a quantitative analysis of the applied...
