Tenocytes in 2D culture prior to mechanical stimulationThis project focused on the effects of 10Hz loading on tendon cells, hypothesising improved tendon repair under such higher frequency loading. Data has demonstrated increased matrix turnover when tenocytes are exposed to loading at 10Hz relative to 1Hz
