ROMP

About Us : Who We Are

The Range of Motion Project

The Mission of ROMP is to provide prosthetic limbs and orthotic braces to those who cannot afford or do not have access to these services, empowering them to actively contribute to their families and communities.

ROMP provides prosthetic limbs, orthotic bracing, and training throughout the developing world. Our goals are to:

  • Increase US awareness of the lack of rehabilitative medicine throughout the world.
  • Assemble teams to evaluate and fabricate prosthetic limbs for amputees within Zacapa and other areas with amputees in need throughout the developing world
  • Train local practitioners to pursue ongoing and sustainable services in the communities we work in.

The Vision of ROMP is a more equal distribution of prosthetic and orthotic services throughout the world, facilitating independence through mobility.

ROMP recognizes the hardship of living in poverty without a prosthetic or orthotic device and understands how important these, often times simple devices, are to those who do not have access to them.

In many cases, a prosthetic or orthotic device is a critical component in a disabled person's rehabilitation. With this "tool", independence, mobility and involvement in community and the socio-economic structure can become more attainable. Rehabilitation has the power to increase visibility of the disabled and awareness can change attitudes and help people see that "disability" is only as crippling as the barriers we let stand in our minds and in our world.

Together, with the help of trained prosthetists and orthotists, care givers, volunteers and generous donors, ROMP's vision of offering independence and hope to countless individuals will become a reality.
