Analysis of variance ANOVA.
Legends:
: logarithm decrement of suppression (more than 0.65 is pathology of I Outebridge degree of the articular cartilage), : suppression index (more than 0.85 is pathology of I Outebridge degree of the articular cartilage), : period of oscillations (less than 0.75 is pathology of I Outebridge degree of the articular cartilage), : number of oscillations (less than 3.00 is pathology of I Outebridge degree of the articular cartilage), and : whole time of oscillations (less than 1.50 is pathology of I Outebridge degree of the articular cartilage).
