adhere to instructions concerning weight-bearing.
The purpose of this study is to compare the postoperative results after ORIF with a PWB protocol versus an early FWB protocol. But in addition, we will measure every patient’s actual load by the means of walker integrated bio-feedback insoles for the first six postoperative weeks to record the adherence to the protocol.
