Abstract

Arthritis is a very painful and crippling disease, affecting almost 12–13% of the World population alone in the age group of 40 to 60 years, resulting out of the degeneration of the active lubricant synovial fluid (S.F.)[1]. The motivation of the present study is to investigate the electrical behaviours of synovial fluid in normal and different forms of arthritis; elaborate work has already been carried out on the rheological and biochemical properties of synovia but relatively very little has been reflected upon its electrical behaviour. It is believed that the rheological deterioration could show some changes in the electrical characteristics of this polar biofluid too.
