Warning of excessive ambulation force, for limiting the application of weight on a lower extremity, usually in the recovery from orthopedic surgery of the lower extremity, is accomplished by a fluid-containing load cell which deflects and changes its volume in accordance with the amount of load thereon. A tubular connector connects the load cell fluid with a displacement-measuring device, for example, a bellows. A particular displacement limit, conveniently signaled with an electrical alarm indicates when predetermined load on the cell is reached.
