Integrum, Mölndal, Sweden presented a cost-effectiveness analysis of the OPRA Implant System focused on US healthcare data at the Annual Conference of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM). The study concluded that for active people with transfemoral amputations, the use of the OPRA Implant System is a cost-effective alternative to a socket prosthesis.
The “Cost-effectiveness Analysis of Osseointegrated Prostheses for Transfemoral Amputation” poster was presented by Jeff Voigt, MBA, MPH, the lead author. The ACRM is a nonprofit professional association focusing on advancing physical medicine and rehabilitation research and care and its conference is the largest interdisciplinary rehabilitation research conference in the world.
Markov health state transition models and probabilistic sensitivity analyses were used to perform the cost-effectiveness analyses in various health states that a patient may be in over a typical 42-year life span, wearing a socket prosthesis or having an OPRA Implant System.
A more comprehensive manuscript on this study is in development with co-authors from multiple clinical specialties that work with patients who undergo osseointegration procedures.
