and free, as well!

On this page there are downloads available of some useful information for wearers of Ilizarov and other fixators.

Firstly there is the excellent 'Living with your fixator'. This is produced by the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, in the UK. It covers all facets of living with fixator and I extend my warmest thanks for the medical team at the hospital for giving me permission to reproduce this booklet on the site.

Secondly there is a basic Ilizarov physiotherapy and exercise document from King's College Hospital, London. This is aimed at wearers of tibial fixators.
