Mechanical Properties of the Sacrospinous Ligament

Team Members: Winston Becker, Kay Comer, and Kelsey Hales

Advisor: Dr. Raffaella De Vita

The goal of our senior design team is to design a testing protocol, quantify statistically significant mechanical properties, and determine the elastic behavior of the sacrospinous ligament to inform the development of treatments for pelvic floor disorders.

Key Features:

  • Understanding pelvic ligaments’ material properties will aid in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders (PFD)

  • The sacrospinous ligament is used in the current treatment for PFD—particularly pelvic organ prolapse

    Deliverables:

  • Produce statistically significant mechanical properties for the sacrospinous ligament

  • Design a cutting instrument to obtain consistent, standardized samples
