I am looking for information to aid in the development of small
joint prosthetic devices. I need some suggestions on where to
find the following:

1) In-Vitro forces (stress)

2) In-Vivo forces (stress)

3) Joint contact stress

For the following areas:

hand
foot
wrist
small joints
metatarsal
metacarpal
great toe
phalanx

Any information or suggestions that you can provide would be
welcome. Please post or e-mail directly me at
"ifcp337@utxvms.cc.utexas.edu".

Thanks in advance.
