The relevancy of the loading type has to do with stress distribution across the bone and implant. 8). 8, the rotational arrows represent bending moments which are calculated as a force multiplied by the distance between the force and the support (M = F × D). It is for this reason that monolateral external fixators are more stable when they are positioned closer to the bone and circular external fixators of smaller ring diameter are more stable than larger diameter ring fixators.
