  • allow a good range of joint mobility
  • promote early rehabilitation by providing a means to avoid muscular retraction
  • allow the patient greater function during the treatment period
  • allow partial weight-bearing with crutches when the residual bone stock is adequate 
  • provide high and inhibitory local concentration of antibiotic in the site of infection at implantation (Bertazzoni Minelli et al., 2015) which is maintained over time (Mutimer et al., 2009).
