Overuse tendinopathies are often considered to be the result of repeated microstrain below the failure threshold, analogous to the fatigue failure of materials under repeated loading [1, 2]. Investigation of tendon overuse in vitro is thus of potential benefit towards characterizing the progression of damage.
