    Abstract Cells adhere to a substrate and generate traction forces in focal adhesions that enable them to apprehend extracellular mechanical properties [1]. Current concerns are focused on mechanisms how the mechanical balances hold in the cell and affect the cell behavior, and therefore non-invasive measurement techniques for the cell traction forces are required. The cell traction force microscopy (TFM) generalized by Dembo and Wang [2] is an attractive approach to non-invasively estimate cell traction force fields, in which an inverse problem is solved using a mechanical model of the substrate and displacement fields from fluorescent images of immersed beads in the… More >
