Three studies are reported and compared to determine if a correlation between natural frequency and torsional strength exists in fractured bone. A human cadaver study, an in vivo human study, and an in vivo canine study follow the changes in the natural frequencies as the bone integrity changes. The canine study also investigates the torsional strength of the callus as healing time progresses.
