Dear Biomech-L subscribers,

I am posting this question on behalf of a colleague who is
developing an experiment in which he want to use a mock-up
muscle. I was told that people use special gelatin. I would
like to know the details of this gelatin, especially its
mechanical and/or viscoelastic properties. I will also
like to get a lead to any reference on this material.

Any other information on the use of gelatin as a replacement
for muscle in an in-vitro testing will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.
