Abbreviation: PWB, Permissive weight bearing; RWB, Restricted weight bearing; N, number of subjects; SD, standard deviation; WB, Weight bearing in newton on affected leg. Figure 7.5 Weight bearing compliance expressed in peak loading during a 26-week post-surgery follow-up. Abbreviations: PWB, Permissive weight bearing; RWB, Restricted weight bearing; N, number of subjects; SD, standard deviation; Peak loading, Peak loading in newton on affected leg. Discussion The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a novel approach involving permissive weight bearing (PWB) in surgically treated trauma patients with peri- and intra-articular fractures of the lower extremities. The PWB regimen led to the patients
