Definition:A calculated measurement of the rigidity of the tibia, that is, the extent to which it resists deformation in response to an applied force, taken as the initial, i.e. the maximum, slope of the load-displacement curve. Tibia is the medial and larger of the two bones of the lower leg of bipeds or hindlimb of quadrupeds which articulates with the femur, fibula, and talus. Bone is the hard, rigid form of connective tissue constituting most of the skeleton of vertebrates and composed chiefly of calcium salts.
