Abstract:SelfSim is also introduced to extract Red Blood Cells (RBCs) material stress-strain behavior from measurements of forces and displacements obtained by optical tweezers techniques. Deformation characteristics of RBCs are closely linked to disease (e.g. malaria) progression and hold promise as a tool for disease diagnosis. SelfSim reveals that in order to capture the interrelationship between measured axial and transverse deformations the stress-strain relationship for healthy RBC has to be anisotropic and thus differs from commonly assumed isotropic hyperelastic response. The deformability and anisotropic stress-strain behavior of healthy RBC decrease for mature stages of malaria.
