View Full Version : Pressure on knee cartilage in animals of different sizes

02-19-2007, 11:43 PM
Dear all,

I was wondering if anyone was aware of any study or any text reporting how
the pressure on knee (or hip) cartilage varied with the size of the animal
(e.g. the pressure on a knee by a walking mouse, rabbit, pig, man).

Thank you for your help
