ABSTRACT
A chapter of the book "How Muscles and Bones Hold You Up: A Book About Models," by Marcia S. Freeman is presented, which focuses on the role of muscles and tendons in human movements. Ligaments hold bones together, but muscles make them move. Muscles are attached to bones by tendons. Photographs describing this are also presented.

    The effects of stress deprivation on the mechanical properties of the patellar tendon (PT) were studied using 14 albino rats. The PT was stress-shielded with cerclages on one side, while the contralateral patellar tendon served as a sham-operated control. After 10 weeks, paired load-strain as...
