Abstract

This work describes the viscoelastic behavior of a tendon. In this paper we develop a mathematical model of the Posterior Tibial Tendon (PTT) for assisting in the prognosis of tendinopathy. The mathematical model is derived from a generalized Maxwell model for viscoelastic materials. To validate the model, a strain is asserted and the associated stress represented. Using the simulated response to a given stress, the mathematical model of the PTT is validated for a response indicative of a healthy tendon.
