Study design: Bovine articular cartilage was pressed against polished glass while bathed in commercially available HA products. While pressed, the cartilage was slid at predetermined speeds (0.1 mm/sec to 10 mm/sec) to represent the sliding speeds of a possible range of daily activities. During sliding, both compression and friction forces were measured to calculate the friction coefficient.
Friction reduction was seen across a wide range of sliding speeds that may represent a possible range of daily activities1
