Table 3 Mean displacement and stiffness at the fracture site when using the 1-pin and 2-pin external fixator techniques and the T-POD pelvic binder for stabilization of pelvic injuries

From: The T-pod is as stable as supraacetabular fixation using 1 or 2 Schanz screws in partially unstable pelvic fractures: a biomechanical study
