Table 3 The mean of the standard deviations for the axial and trans-axial strains measured across repeated trials for each region of the ligament, for each specimen. This represents a mean of all load conditions tested for each specimen

From: Novel quantification of the regional strain distribution in the anterior cruciate ligament in response to simulated loading using micro-CT imaging
