In this module you will study the effect of the stresses that act upon the tissues of the human body. You will assess the differing characteristics of human tissues and how they cope with all types of stress and the factors that affect the coping mechanisms, both medical and physical.

In the study you will be introduced to available equipment and techniques for assessing these stresses and evaluate their effectiveness and usefulness in the clinical setting. In this module you will start to draw links between the mechanical properties of tissue, the factors that affect the functional adaptation under load and their relevance to clinical practice.
