This program gives volunteers the opportunity to assess needs for innovation in prosthetic technology and care delivery, while assisting ROMP-Ecuador and Fundación Hermano Miguel practitioners in delivering prosthetic care and physical therapy to Ecuadorians with amputation who face barriers to this human right. The unparalleled access to patients and practitioners in an access-limited setting, as well as the expert coaching by ROMP innovators, will prepare students to develop user-centered technologies in senior design projects and beyond. Prototypes may be piloted with ROMP patients in Ecuador and Guatemala as the students develop their ideas.
The funds raised on this page will help cover the costs of the program fee of $1500. Any additional money raised will be used to help cover my cost of transportation to and from Quite.
