The autor describes following stages of research on external fixator Dynastab DK – K (knee joint) with in – built artificial joint enabling physiological range of movement of the knee and the use of the device in functional treatment of articular fractures of the knee. The final clinical prototype of the device was developed according to the results of the experiments with anatomical preparations of knee joints in which the trajectory of the physiological movement of the knee was stated. These observations were used to construct mechanical joint with the range of movement adequate to this of the healthy knee. The positive and negative aspects in DK – K fixator are also described. The fixator was appled in 6 difficult cases of articular fractures of knee with good results.
