How to choose and prepare the strain gauges for bonding on bones "in vitro" and "in vivo"? This communication aims to elucidate technical details and some applications: direct assessment of the axial load, the bending moment, and the torque applied to long bones by the physiological loads. As a typical example of application, we will show the assessment of stress protection due to plates on the bones in the sheep tibia.
