Soft tissue insertions into bone are of critical importance in transmitting forces from ligaments and tendons to bone, and thus are crucial in joint stability and musculoskeletal motion. Despite their importance, there exists no established experimental method for rigorously determining their function. Previous studies [1–3] have established the pull-out test as the standard method of evaluating the mechanical function of soft-tissue insertions, however, as this method tests response at a single orientation it may not capture the overall function of soft-tissue insertions.
