Project description

This project's aim is to investigate the effect of in vivo loading and the required recovery time of ankle cartillage with regard to the knee in subjects with healthy cartilage. Subsequently, the effect of in vivo loading and the required time will be investigated in pathological, degenerated knee cartilage in osteoarthritis patients.
