Non-Invasive Measurement of Skin Tension Lines
A majority of reported mechanical assessments of skin are based on ex-vivo studies of skin samples, although some in-vivo studies have been reported. Most devices used to measure the mechanical properties of skin in-vivo however have a drawback. Devices that apply torsion or suction ignore the mechanical anisotropy of the skin. The orientation of collagen...
