Compression test results: a for different axis of compression for either flat or trabecular scaffolds, showing that axis 3 of compression reports greater mechanical strength as it is the same axis for bone’s load bearing in natural position, (b) compression test results: treated vs. untreated scaffolds, showing that after inducing for mineralization, scaffolds increase both their compression strength and stiffness. Scaffolds treated with CRFP in addition to traditional osteogenic agents reported greater strength and stiffness
