Properties and Mechanics

There are many properties that are associated with the human body. All rheological properties apply to the body, like stress and strain. These properties vary in the different parts of the body and they can even vary with the direction of forces. Many studies have been conducted to determine the properties of the human body. Determining these characteristics are important in medicine and also biomimetics. The characteristics found in experiments can be used to develop new techniques in healing the body, to create equipment to be used in conjuction with the body, and can be used to create equipment to be used on the body. They can aslo be used to develop robots or other machinery that can mimic the human body to perform tasks that are difficult to perform.
