Study of the physicomechanical properties of various types of biotissues for the purpose of selecting alloprosthetic material

  • 15 Accesses

Abstract

The results of in vitro tests to determine the physicomechanical properties of muscle and fatty tissues, myofascial composite tissues, and the structural soft tissues of the living organism are compared with similar data for unfilled SKTN silicone rubber vulcanizates with different degrees of cross-linking. It is shown that the properties of encapsulated silicone materials are similar to those of myofascial composite tissues tested in vitro. It is proposed to use vulcanizates with a relatively dense vulcanization network, selected on the basis of the modulus of elasticity, for the cosmetic correlation of defects of muscle tissues.
