• Cells
  • The phenomena of gene gradients during development is dismissed as an epiphenomena resulting from the passage of the biomechanical wave initiating changes in gene expression in individual cells as the wave passes through a cell sheet. (wikipedia.org)
  • Contact guidance refers to a phenomenon for which the orientation of cells and stress fibers is influenced by geometrical patterns such as nano/microgrooves on substrates, or collagen fibers in gels and soft tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • Walking
  • A distinctive characteristic of impaired walking performance among older adults is a greater metabolic cost (worse economy) compared to young adults.Unfortunately, those running studies did not measure the metabolic cost of walking.We found no substantial biomechanical differences between older walkers and runners.

  • fluid
  • Once fluid flow begins, biomechanical and hemodynamic inputs are applied to the system set up by vasculogenesis, and the active remodelling process can begin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once contraction of the heart begins, vascular remodelling progresses via the interplay of forces resulting from biomechanical cues and fluid dynamics, which are translated by mechanotransduction to changes at cellular and genetic levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanics
  • The word "biomechanics" (1899) and the related "biomechanical" (1856) come from the Ancient Greek βίος bios "life" and μηχανική, mēchanikē "mechanics", to refer to the study of the mechanical principles of living organisms, particularly their movement and structure. (wikipedia.org)
