by Range Of Motion Project NFP
Vetted

Summary

The Range Of Motion Project (ROMP) manufactures and distributes custom prosthetic and orthotic devices to thousands of the western hemisphere's most vulnerable individuals, who would otherwise not be able to access this critical health care. ROMP is seeking funding to purchase, fit, and provide ongoing support for 75 ROMP patients in 2016. The majority of these patients have already been identified by ROMP professional staff in Guatemala and have complex cases that require high tech components.

Challenge

Recognizing that amputees are not disabled by a missing limb, but by a missing prosthesis, ROMP believes that with proper prosthetic care, individuals may be able to return to their families and communities, as productive, engaged, healthy individuals. ROMP's vision is a world where all amputees receive the prosthetic care that they need, regardless of financial position.

Solution

ROMP provides the best most advanced prosthetic and orthotic technology to anyone in need. ROMP believes that mobility is a concept that unites all human beings, regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic status, and can be critical in an individual's pursuit of life's many aspirations - family, community, work, active play and adventure. After 10 years of dedicated service, the organization has refined sustainable and scalable healthcare delivery models, built to respond to each patient

Long-Term Impact

If ROMP is successful, then these vulnerable individuals will return to life and their families as productive and engaged individuals, inspired by the care that they received and their new found mobility. In addition, ROMP will be able to effectively measure, monitor, and evaluate the results of receiving this custom device to determine the most successful ROMP measures and those that need improvement.
