The Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics published a rotator cuff repair study, with a Tekscan sensor sutured into a shoulder mockup.
Their tests analyzed force, pressure, and area in a "repair box". They concluded that suture tapes generated lower contact force than commonly used wires, and that "the use of suture tapes, because of its smaller compressive effect over the tendon may create a better perfusion environment healing, while maintaining adequate biomechanical stability."
