The authors have undertaken a series of mechanical tests in order to assess the performance of regenerated cellulose under either static or dynamic conditions, and to evaluate its long-term behaviour under mechanical stress. In this respect, bending stiffness, resistance to compression, creep under compressive stress, in vitro and in vivo ageing and fatigue resistance were studied. It appears that this material demonstrates mechanical properties which depend upon its density, which is itself related to its water content. Moreover, this material is very stable under dynamic stress. This could be an interesting property for use in orthopaedic devices.
