k ([cm.sup.2] [mm.sup.-1] H[g.sup.-1] [s.sup.-1]), Pi (mm [Hg.sup.-1]) and u (m [s.sup.-1]) are the hydraulic conductivity of the interstitium, the interstitial fluid pressure and the interstitial fluid velocity respectively (the Nomenclatures are listed in Appendix 1).
Starling's forces The hydrostatic pressures that determine whether fluid moves out of the blood into the interstitium or the opposite direction: capillary pressure, interstitial fluid pressure, plasma colloid osmotic pressure and interstitial colloid osmotic pressure.
We suggest a physiological explanation for residual-limb fluid loss over time: while a person wears a prosthesis, unless the socket is very loose, interface pressures induce interstitial fluid pressures that put residual-limb fluid transport out of balance.
Because of the continual stress applied by the prosthetic socket on the residual limb during standing and walking and thus the increase in interstitial fluid pressure, people with limb amputation would be expected to undergo limb fluid volume decreases over time, not increases.
Because of the quite low permeability of cartilage (in the range (1.2-6.2) x [10.sup.-16] [m.sup.4]/Ns for all types of cartilage materials) [11], large interstitial fluid pressures and dissipations occur in the tissue during loading.
