Load deformation curves in different models. The group-level load deformation curves of samples in EF-femur, LCP, and EF-tibia models were obtained in the axial compression and torsion rigid tests. The deformation curves were plotted in black line for EF-femur model, in red line for LCP model, and in green line for EF-tibia model. Panel a: x-axis, deformation (mm); y-axis, load (N). Panel b: x-axis, rotational deformity (deg); y-axis, toque (Nm)
