Abstract


A dynamometric device was designed for measuring compression-distraction forces in a mini-fixator. The mini-fixator was used to make a reserve of soft tissues of the hand and foot interdigital spaces in patients with syndactyly, posttraumatic stumps of digital phalanges during the first interdigital space phalangization. The usage of the described device increased the number of techniques for controlling biomechanical condition of soft tissues of the patients with hand and foot pathology.
