Strain-induced damage reduces echo intensity changes in tendon during loading “A noninvasive method with which to measure such damage potentially could quantify structural compromise from tendon injury and track improvement over time. In this study, tendon mechanics are measured before and after damage is induced by “overstretch” (strain exceeding the elastic limit of the tissue)

” Echometrix has begun a human clinical study with professional baseball and Dr. Levon Nazarian. The study will evaluate the ulnar collateral ligament that connects the ulnar bone in the forearm to the humerus bone in the upper arm. The ligament has to withstand huge stress when a pitcher repeatedly throws the ball, powerfully and
