          Abstract

          Although bone densitometry is often used as a surrogate to evaluate bone fragility, direct biomechanical testing of bone undoubtedly provides more information about mechanical integrity. Like any other specialized field, biomechanics contains its own techniques and vocabulary. This article serves as a guide to biomechanical principles and testing techniques for bone specimens.
