|Abstract: ||This review focus on the bone physiology and mechanotransduction elements and mechanisms. Bone biology
and architecture is deeply related to the mechanical environment. Orthopaedic implants cause profound changes in the
biomechanics and electrophysiology of the skeleton. In the context of biomedical engineering, a deep reflexion on bone
physiology and electromechanics is needed. Strategic development of new biomaterials and devices that respect and
promote continuity with bone structure could have a major impact on patient’s well being.|
