Article
Full-text available
Tendon and ligament injuries are triggered by mechanical loading, but the specific mechanisms are not yet clearly identified. It is well established however, that the inflection and transition points in tendon stress-strain curves represent thresholds that may signal the onset of irreversible fibrillar sliding. This phenomenon often results in a pr...

The musculoskeletal system is composed by hard and soft tissue. These tissues are characterized by a wide range of mechanical properties that cause a progressive transition from one to the other. These material gradients are mandatory to reduce stress concentrations at the junction site. Nature have answered to this topic developing optimized inter...
Article
Full-text available
Inspired by Nature, one of the most ambitious challenge in soft robotics is to design actuators capable of reaching performances comparable to the skeletal muscles. Considering the perfectly balanced features of natural muscular tissue in terms of linear contraction, force‐to‐weight ratio, scalability and morphology, scientists have been working fo...
Article
Full-text available
Skeletal muscles are considered to date the best existing actuator in nature thanks to their hierarchical multiscale fibrous structure capable to enhance their strength and contractile performances. In recent years, driven by the growing of the soft robotics and tissue-engineering research field, many biomimetic soft actuators and scaffolds were de...
Article
Reconstructions of ruptured tendons and ligaments currently have dissatisfactory failure rate. Failures are mainly due to the mechanical mismatch of commercial implants with respect to the host tissue. In fact, it is crucial to replicate the morphology (hierarchical in nature) and mechanical response (highly-nonlinear) of natural tendons and ligame...
