Figure 7: Diagram of the lengthening in a hexapod frame. The oblique orientation of struts to the ring creates a series of right triangles. The side of the triangle that represents the amount of frame height change (ΔB – amount of bone lengthening) is the hypotenuse of the triangle. The strut length increase(ΔS) represents the cathetus of the triangle
