- In a combined research project of the Academic Medical Centre (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) and the AO Research Institute (Davos, Switzerland) a new dynamic external fixation device for the treatment of distal radial fractures was developed. To promote functional recovery the new fixator enables mobilisation of the wrist early in the course of treatment. This thesis describes the process of development, the biochemical and kinematic properties, and the clinical testing of the Flexafix device.
