Although the effects of exercise and mechanical forces on musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems have been well documented, the actual mechanisms by which mechanical forces act at the cellular level are not well understood. At present, studies of the interaction of mechanical forces with cells encompass many different cell types in various tissues. This volume draws together these apparently disparate observations and makes comparisons between the nature of cellular responses in different tissues. Studies of cells derived from skeletal muscle, bone and cardiovascular tissue are considered to provide a comprehensive synthesis and review of recent work. The volume will be of ... Read more

Reviews for Biomechanics and Cells
The strengths of this book include the diversity of cell types and physiological responses covered, the significant detail on the putative biological mechanisms by which mechanical stimuli may be transduced by cells, and most of all the variety and detail of the experimental models, preparations, and devices that are described...an interesting collection of articles on mechanical signal transduction by cells ...
