Table 1 Mean axial load to induce one millimeter of axial movement.

From: The influence of a weight-bearing platform on the mechanical behavior of two Ilizarov ring fixators: tensioned wires vs. half-pins

  Direct Loading Indirect Loading
Wires 70.73 (+/- 0.80) 131.19 (+/- 3.96)
Half Pins 106.34 (+/- 2.78) 205.94 (+/- 5.60)
  1. All values are in Newtons, and the standard deviations are given in brackets. The increased forces between wires and half-pins as well as between direct and indirect loading were significantly different (p < 0.05).
