WOLFF'S Law is a medical rule written by 19th century German anatomist Julius Wolff. It states that a bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the weight it's placed under.
Julius Wolff observed in 1892 that bone under stress would change its shape if exposed to this physical force of nature for long enough; this is what we today call 'bone remodeling', commonly known as 'Wolff's law' (Wolff 1892, Brand & Claes 1989).
