The free Achilles tendon is considered a homogenous structure that transmits muscular force in a linear manner. However, the tendon undergoes longitudinal rotation and is separated in mechanically independent segments with distinct mechanical and material tissue properties. The present review examines the hypothesis that the human Achilles tendon is asymmetrically loaded, and undergoes heterogeneous deformation during movement.
