Fig. 1

Original recordings of externally applied load (dotted line) and telemetrically measurement implant load (solid line). Two weeks post-operatively (upper left), high implant loads were measured; the implant load was nearly gone by 27 weeks (lower left). Each measurement consisted of three cycles of increasing and decreasing external load. The corresponding slope of the regression line between externally applied load and measured fixator loads (upper and lower right) was calculated as the parameter of bone healing.
