International standardization of instruments used to determine mechanical properties of human skin
The formulation of standards for and endorsement of procedures, devices and units used in investigations of the mechanical behaviour of human skin will require the definition of desired mechanical properties and evaluation of existing and future technology in terms of its ability to generate this information.
