Introduction: Aging and the Mechanical Properties of Tissues
Age-related changes in the mechanical properties of soft tissue has growing importance in medicine. With advances in clinical care, management of chronic conditions, and an increase in life expectancy, the quality of life of aging populations ais increasingly determined by the accompanying changes that occur to the mechanical properties of tissues such as blood vessels and lungs.
