The responses of living cells to mechanical stimuli are believed to underlie diseases such as fibrotic cardiomyopathy  and asthma . Emerging evidence suggests that mechanical signals transduced through the actin cytoskeleton and its connections to the extracellular matrix (ECM) have important effects on cell physiology and tissue development . Understanding the responses of cells in realistic mechanical environments to mechanical stimuli is therefore of great importance to understanding development and disease.
