Micro-computed tomography reconstructions of bone formation (left) when the injury site experienced no mechanical force for seven weeks and (right) when mechanical forces were exerted on the injury site beginning after four weeks for a duration of three weeks. Study results showed that bone formation improved by 20 percent with delayed loading compared to when no force was applied, and strong tissue biomaterial integration was evident. (Credit: Joel Boerckel)
