Example text

05 and neglecting the weight of the leg, what weight is needed to produce a 30 kg traction force on the femur? What important features have been forgotten and usually must be done to the patient in these cases? Measure the angles needed directly from the drawing. A B C D 20º ?  Assume that the energy level needed for shoulder fracture is approximately 70 J. What is the minimum weight needed for an object falling from a 10 m height to cause fracture? What is its velocity at impact?  The Achilles tendon is located on the posterior aspect of the calcaneus bone as far as possible from the ankle joint (roughly 6 cm) giving the calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus) the maximum possible advantage in lifting the body.
