Fascia and tensegrity: The quintessence of a unified systems conception

The heterogeneous connective tissue fascia is constructed upon a tensegrity-based architecture providing cells and organism’s
with stability coupled with mobility. A term coined by Sharkey and Avison “Fasciategrity” used for the first time at the British
Fascia Symposium 2018, speaks of the relationship of balance and integrity within the fascial net.

Fascia and living tensegrity considerations in lower extremity and pelvic entrapment neuropathies

Peripheral neuropathies can have a plethora of origins including physical insults resulting from connective
tissue compression and entrapment. Observational investigations, using biotensegrity focused dissections,
have identified site-specific fascial structures that are hypothesised to afford integrity to neurovascular
structuresby providing appropriate tension and compression.

Site specific fascia tuning pegs and places of perilous passage myofascial considerations in upper extremity entrapment neuropathies: a clinical anatomist’s view

The objective of this study was to identify common anatomical locations of densified fascia associated with
axillary, musculocutaneous, median, ulnar and radial nerve entrapment. Additionally, a proposal concerning a
tensegrity based expansive decompressive protective role of muscles and ligaments as ‘site-specific fascia
tuning pegs’ is offered for consideration.
