Lauren Anderson

The American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA), in partnership with the Center for O&P Learning & Evidence-Based Practice (COPL), is proud to announce a Request for Pilot Grant Proposals in 16 potential areas of orthotic and prosthetic research including an open topic.

There are 16 topics total with a few examples listed below:
*Study community outcomes of patients, such as activity, social interactions, depression and anxiety
*Understand the effects of prosthetic component selection on community activity levels rather than in the lab
*Study the origins/clinical goals and prevalence of prosthesis prescribing patterns
*Link biomechanical performance measures to functional levels
*Open Topics – Beyond the Above Priorities, Top Quality Clinical O&P Research Topics Considered
*See the rest of the topics in the full RFP at

AOPA and COPL will give preference to grants that address evidence-based clinical application in orthotics and prosthetics. Please post this RFP and share it with your colleagues. The deadline for proposals is April 28, 2017.
