The ProApp: Participate in the Future of Prosthetics!
SRT Prosthetics proudly participates in a national initiative to help improve treatment for amputees. We collect data about our patients’ progress at certain intervals in their care and we appreciate the participation of our patients in this ongoing project!
What to Expect:
Patients will be asked to complete a few surveys using an iPad. These will likely be repeated a few times over the course of several months. Patients will be asked to complete some physical performance tests, mostly related to walking. Our most important goal is to keep you safe, so let your prosthetist know if you feel unsafe performing any of the tests. Patients will be able to ask your prosthetist for your test results, so you can compare to previous visits.
Shows their progress with daily functional tasks in a measurable way.
Provides valuable information about the patient which may affect their choices about new prosthetic components.
A great accountability tool! Helps us track our performance and see how we compare to other prosthetic companies across the country.
FOR THE HEALTHCARE TEAM:
Improves communication within the team about continuity of care including fellow prosthetists, physicians and therapists.
FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES:
Helps to justify the cost of a new prosthesis or other components.
Paying it forward to help other future amputees; also to support increased development of new prosthetic feet, knees, and other components.
