Diaphyseal fractures of long bones

Diaphyseal fractures of long bones Diaphyseal fractures of long bones. Composite femoral models with simulated diaphyseal fractures are treated with external fixation (ExFix) or intramedullary nailing (IMN) and tested for torsional and flexural behaviour. Internal-external rotation tests and dynamic sagittal 4-point bending tests were conducted. Load (torque or oment) versus displacement (rotation angle or deflection) data were recorded and processed.

Lumbar Spine Kinematics

Lumbar Spine Kinematics. A composite pelvic model with adjacent lumbar vertebrae is placed on testing machine to receive dynamic axial and mediolateral compressive deformations. A frontal close-up view of L1-L2-L3 vertebrae is video-recorded, for subsequent processing and calculation of angular displacements and other kinematic parameters. Meticulous alignment of the composite model is achieved by means of laser aligner.

ACL Reconstruction

ACL Reconstruction. Experimental simulation of anterior drawer test on animal knee specimens is a demanding bench-top application. A special device was designed, optimized and manufactured from stainless steel, in order to investigate the potential of various ACL reconstruction techniques.

Intramedullary Nailing (IMN)

Intramedullary Nailing (IMN) of long bones. A femur model with a bipolar diaphyseal fracture and IMN in place, is about to receive dynamic 4-point bending on the sagittal plane, for characterization of flexural properties.
