A Limess Q400 Digital Image Correlation device with two cameras (Limess Messtechnik, Krefeld, Germany) is available for optical co-registration of mechanical properties and/or tissue deformation. The device is capable of measuring 2D and 3D deformations at various framerates. It works independently or coupled with the material testing machine.
