Abstract

The presence of steady resting electrical potentials on the surface of living bone allows it, and other living tissues, to be considered as an electrical generator with a Thevenin equivalent circuit. By loading the generator component of bone with externally-applied resistors, fundamental electrical characteristics such as resistance, current, maximum generated power and power dissipated can be determined. This method has been applied to rabbit tibia.
