Improvements in body armor and battlefield medical care have resulted in an increase in survival rates but also an increase in survivable battlefield extremity injuries (Covey 2002; Covey 2006; Owens, Kragh et al. 2007). It is well known that these traumatic extremity injuries require adequate stabilization to achieve an optimal healing outcome. Extremity fractures also affect a large proportion of the civilian population. In 2005, 5.7 million Americans suffered an injury resulting in bone fracture (CDC/NCHS). Transport of these domestically injured individuals to medical facilities also requires stabilization to avoid further injury.
