Is there a way of determining the pressure which can be withheld by the
host bone? This pressure will depend on factors such as thichness,
stress, viscoelastic properties of the host bone. Is there some kind of
instrument which can record the value of these factors (ideally during
surgery) and determine the force, quantity and rate of bone graft
impact?

Many thanks for your contribution.
