Transient bioimpedance monitoring of mechanotransduction in artificial tissue during indentation

stimuli is known as mechanotransduction [ 1 ]. Mechanotransduction is of fundamental significance in cell physiology besides the obvious application in facilitating sensing in specialized mechanoreceptors involved in touch, such as Pacinian corpuscles, Meissner’s corpuscles, Merkel’s discs and Ruffini endings found in glabrous skin [ 3 ], and hearing, such as hair cells in the cochlea [ 5 ]. In particular, mechanotransduction is involved in many important cell-regulated processes in tissues such as the growth of bone and muscle [ 6 , 7 ], the development of blood

Endermologie New Aproach in the Medicine Treatment


Using the effect of mechanical forces affecting cellular response in the treatment of post-traumatic, postoperative, post-imlantation conditions through the application of Endermologie®- mechanotransduction represents a revolutionary solution in tissue-rehabilitation and positive target tissue influencing, with faster regeneration (1). Endermologie® is a noninvasive, painless, natural method of treatments of all connective tissue transformations, muscle and circulation pathologies. The aim of our study is investigation and explanation the mechanism of action by observing the physiological effects of Endermologie® based on human studies. The paper is focused on monitoring of possitive effect tissue regeneration using endermologie as a tools mechanostimulation improvements of systems integridy and health improvement.

Shear stress regulation of endothelium: A double-edged sword

Introduction Vascular endothelium, the inner lining of the blood vessel wall, constantly responds to hemodynamic forces from blood flow. Thus, mechanical cues and the subsequent mechanotransduction in vascular endothelial cells (ECs) greatly affect vascular physiology and pathophysiology.[ 1 , 2 , 3 ] The molecular mechanisms underlying the flow regulation of endothelial biology have been studied intensively by many labs including our own. In general, the blood flow pattern in the straight part of the arterial tree is less disturbed with high mean shear
