Abstract

Biomechanics of the skin is an important subject in skin research. It has been studied for many decades involving various technologies and methods to haracterize and quantify mechanical properties of the skin under different in vivo conditions. The present EEMCO paper reviews the current relevant
information, providing practical orientation to researchers dedicated to in vivo assessment of biomechanics of skin and its annexes. We discuss the available non-invasive instruments, including their principles and variables.
