1) using as mechanical stimulus
the strain energy per unit of mass (SEM), determined from:
From human subject experimental studies alone, fully discerning the pathway of mechanical stimulus
transmission through the skeletal system during vibration training or quantifying the stress levels is difficult.
Vibration is a mechanical stimulus
characterized by an oscillatory motion (3).
Most interventions for fractures of the distal radius involve immobilising the fracture which subsequently reduces the level of mechanical stimulus
Comparisons of rates of capture of algal-flavored and unflavored plastic spheres indicated that captures at the ciliary band did not depend on chemical stimuli although acceptance or rejection nearer to the mouth did, thus supporting the hypothesis of a mechanical stimulus
for the local reversals that retain particles at the ciliary band (Appelmans, 1994).
A custom multisite test fixture interfaces to the appropriate mechanical stimulus
, depending on the nature of the MEMS device being tested.
Researchers deliver a mechanical stimulus
to the cell and then measure its response in terms of its resistance or "pullback.
Furthermore, the concept of mechanically-enhanced aging assumes that the mechanical stimulus
changes the time scale of the relaxation behavior, but not the manner in which the structure relaxes.
She added: "A blunt pen-like instrument was used to measure the touch sensitivity of the animals to a mechanical stimulus
This mechanical stimulus
produces a stretch reflex which, depending on the selected frequency, can vary from 30 to 60 times per second, resulting in muscles constantly contracting very vigorously.
