Abstract

Abstract Different external fixators demonstrated different motion patterns at the fracture site in AP bending. This indicates that fracture gap motion patterns cannot be predicted from a single value of overall frame stiffness. This type of information may be useful in examining existing theories of fracture healing in response to different types of fracture gap motion.
