Based on the literature [23,30] and the preliminary results from a pilot test, the technical specifications of the apparatus were set as follows: (1) precise indentation speed control with a maximum speed of 10 mm/s, (2) compressive force up to 150 N, (3) indentations of up to 35 mm, (4) manufacturing cost (<$5,000), (5) adjustable indentation direction from 0[degrees] to 360[degrees], (6) quick replacement of indentation probes, and (7) negligible delay between loading and unloading of tissue so that hysteresis can be observed and measured.
