Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A brief review of the advances in the biotribology of articular cartilage in the last decade or so are presented. The review is limited to experimental friction and wear studies involving articular cartilage. The importance of developing in vitro models as tools not only to understand the cartilage tribological characteristics, but to evaluate current and future cartilage substitution and treatment therapies is discussed.
