Vibrating tendons can illuminate mechanics of human movement

University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have devised a new approach for noninvasively measuring tendon tension while a person is engaging in activities such as walking or running. This advance could illuminate the mechanics of how we move. It also could apply to such fields as orthopedics, rehabilitation, ergonomics and sports.
