Dear BIOMCH-L Readers,

I'm studying about the bone remodeling using rabbit's tibial bone.
I would like to know how large strain is occur at bone of rabbit tibia
when a rabbit jump.
I'm going to experiment measuring the strain of rabbit tibial bone by
using strain gage, but I've never measure strain of bone in vivo.

Please let me know strain measurement method of bone in vivo,
or recommend a paper or book that write the measurement method.

Thanks in advance.
