Abstract

A study was performed to quantify the osmotic and viscoelastic properties of isolated chondrocytes and to test the hypothesis that the mechanical properties of the chondrocyte are influenced by their physicochemical (osmotic) environment. It was observed that the osmotic environment of the chondrocyte has a strong influence on its morphology and its viscoelastic mechanical properties.
