Paper Abstract

The method of double-exposure holographic interferometry was applied to study the behavior of lower leg bones supported with different fixing devices. The torsion and bending was examined for both types of fixators: an external one (Orthofix type 10000) and an internal one (osteosynthesis AO plate, Howmedica). The influence of the fixation on the mechanical response to the external load of the supported tibial shaft is discussed. The advantages of holographic interferometry in the above investigation are pointed out.
