With continued growth in the biomaterials market, characterization of the mechanical properties of soft tissues has become a rising interest. These properties allow for the understanding of tissue function and injury mechanisms, aiding engineers and researchers in the development of bio-engineered tissues, computer assisted and remote robotic surgical methods, and injury prevention recommendations. One of the challenges in testing soft tissues arises in gripping of the specimens. Biological tissues are often times wet, slippery or delicate. Any combination of these characteristics leaves the existing test methods far below the ideal gripping solution. The ultimate goal lies in the fixation of soft biological tissues without causing premature failure or slippage.

Hydrogels are widely used in the biomedical industry for applications such as coatings for catheters, contact lenses, scaffolds, and wound dressings because these materials have the ability to absorb fluids and swell up to 2000 times their original size. Hydrogels are often implanted into the body to provide medical benefits and therefore

Extensometers are often used to accurately measure the deformation of a material under mechanical loading. Due to the fragile nature of biological soft tissues, such as fascia, skin, and intestinal lining, a non-contacting extensometer is the ideal solution for measuring tensile strain in these specimens.
