Brief Summary:
This study will use a new "H" joystick for reduction on patients with femur fractures to investigate the reduction time, operating time and bone healing status for the evaluation of the clinical application benefits of this joystick.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Femur Shaft Fracture Device: "H" joystick Procedure: Common reduction methods Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study will design a new "H" joystick for reduction (which has received the national utility model patent) and will use this equipment on 80 patients (55 males, 25 females) with femur fractures to investigate the reduction time, operating time and bone healing status for the evaluation of the clinical application benefits of this joystick.
