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.

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-15)Animal studies suggest that regular exposure to whole-body vibration (WBV) induces an anabolic response in bone and tendon. However, the effects of this type of intervention on human tendon properties and its influence on ...
