I am interested in the mechanical properties of epidermis and dermis of
human finger. Especially, I am interested in the properties, such as
Young's ratio and stress-strain curve of the papilla where epidermis and
dermis combines, Meissner corpuscle and Merkel cell.
Does anyone have informations of these properties?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
