Abstract

The partial weight-bearing protocol after lower extremity fracture is an important issue in postoperative rehabilitation. As it is difficult to quantify the actual weight-load and provide a constant weight, the protocol is unestablished. By training with a lower-body positive-pressure treadmill (LBPPT) and using an in-shoe pressure-measuring device, partial weight-bearing exercise can be performed with quantified loads. This case series illustrates the applicability of an early quantitative partial weight-bearing rehabilitation program using LBPPT with an in-shoe pressure-measuring device after periarticular tibial fractures, which provides a quantitatively predetermined constant load.
