Patients of different age with stunting one (85) or both extremities (153) discovered that in the remote terms after surgical lengthening of the limbs by Ilizarov increases stride length, but the scale of the change in length of the limbs is limited by the necessity of obtaining the effect of increasing the speed of locomotion defined by the degree of conservation than the maximum moment of muscle strength of the operated limb.
