Functional tissue engineering establishes functional criteria for design and manufacture of the scaffold matrix for repair and replacement. It also provides useful and strategic information in mechanical stimulation of the cells seeded in the matrix before and after surgical placement to enhance the success of tissue engineering. Biomechanics plays an important role in accomplishing these requirements by assessing the in vivo environment and the material properties.
