A biomechanical strength comparison of external fixators.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to biomechanically test the current commercially available uniplanar, half-pin external fixators, comparing stiffness, weight, and cost. METHODS The Hammer, HexFix, Hoffmann, Monotube Blue, Monotube Red, Torus, TraumaFix, and Ultra-X were tested using previously published methods. The Instron 4500 was used to… (More)
