Treatment of trauma patients and fractures has changed dramatically throughout the years. From conservative methods to nowadays various kinds of screws, pins, plates and nails for optimal fixation of fractures. This lead to changes in post-operative management as well, from bedrest to (partial) weight bearing. Some patients however have very limited to no ability to mobilise, such as critical ill patients on the Intensive Care Unit, amputees or spinal cord injured patients. Due to innovations such as hydrotherapy, osseointegrated prosthesis and exoskeletons, even these people can mobilise. Thanks to innovations like these an increasing number of trauma patients are able to fully reintegrate into community life and get back to an active and independent life style.
