Abstract
The use of external osteosynthesis in the healing and the management of fractured bones is in rapid progression. The method employs an external rigid frame which is mounted to keep the fractured bones in state of immobilisation by means of percutaneous transfixing pins traversing the bones. In this paper, holographic interferometry is used to investigate the mechanical behaviour of the ball-joint - a central element in the fixation frame - sub-jected to realistic loads. Besides, the work has permitted to compare several models of this piece (of comparable handiness) as to their characteristics of rigidity and of resistance to slipping.
