Based on past research, the growth and repair of bone is a function of physical activity (i.e. stresses) and bone chemistry. As such, the rate of recovery of an individual that has undergone total joint arthroplasty could be influenced by the introduction of changes in bone chemistry and "apparent" stress state in the bone that results from the surgical procedures and/or treatments. This preliminary study explored the opportunity for introducing residual stresses in hard tissues using andoi:10.1115/imece2007-43281 fatcat:ymvmr2r3hba7hoo7xpdeco6s7y
