Paper Abstract

Mechanical properties of tibia fixed with an external fixative device (external fixator) were investigated under some simulated loading conditions. Deformation measurements were performed using double exposure holographic interferometry and real-time holographic interferometry. According to the results of the holographic interferometry, strains on the fixation pins and rods were also measured using strain gauges. The results showed that, with most types of external fixator, dislocations of both fractured ends were mainly caused by decrease in strength of the fixation pins. With increase in strength of fixation pins, angular deformation of the rod was more obvious. Increase in the strength of the rod was not always effective in decreasing dislocation of both fractured ends. Changes in bracing technique with marked change in rigidity of external fixator were useful to decrease dislocation of both fractured ends.
