Does your individual Achilles tendon structure influence Achilles tendon load?

The 3D geometry of the Achilles tendon is complex (essentially made up of tendons from the three calf muscles that are twisted together) and influences the strain that occurs in different components of the tendon. This is enabled by sliding that occurs between these subtendons. They can act independently to some extent. This team aimed to develop a mathematical model to test whether the geometry of the Achilles and different rehab exercises influence Achilles strain.
