    A force measurement device has been designed to monitor the mechanical properties of fracture site with external fixation. Forces are measured through electric resistance strain gauges mounted on fixation framework and the measurement results are displayed on an LCD screen. The device features a force range of 0-10 kg with linearity and repeatability less than 1% and accuracy less than 0.1 kg.
