20 patients having received an AO large external fixator at the tibia will be equipped with a data logger device (AO Fracture Monitor) attached post-operation to a connection rod of the external fixator. The device continuously measures deformation of the fixator frame due to weight bearing for up to 6 months by means of a strain gauge. Several parameters are calculated from the recorded change in the strain signal and are stored at a regular interval.
