  • Request for info: MTS Extensometer

    Dear subscribers:

    In preparation for a grant submission, I am evaluating devices for soft tissue
    strain measurement.

    I would like to hear some real world experiences and opinions about the MTS
    "loop" soft tissue extensometer, and any strain measuring devices available
    other than DVRTs, LVDTs, and LMSGs.

    I am testing rat Achilles tendons, 2mm diameter, 10mm gage length. Currently
    I am using an MTS Bionix 858.20 biaxial servo-hydraulic system. We may also
    purchase a smaller, screw driven machine for these tests.

    I am also curious about whether anyone has reliably tested specimens of this
    type and size in strain control.

    Thank you in advance.

    Tom
