In addition to traditional testing methods, which generally involve complex sample preparation, indentation exists as an alternative, non-destructive testing technique for measuring the mechanical properties of materials. Indentation is increasingly being used in the mechanical assessment of soft hydrated materials, e.g., biological tissues, because of its non-destructive nature, small sample capacity, and ability to hone in on localized regions of interest.
