Ability P&O receives pilot grant to evaluate the benefits of hydraulic and microprocessor ankles in transtibial amputees.
Ability P&O has built a flourishing clinical research program, including partnerships with various universities and research institutions. The success in securing research funding and producing publications for consumption by practitioners and patients was made possible by early pilot research funding from the Center for O&P Learning (COPL: https://www.aopanet.org/resources/center-for-op-learning/). Ability P&O received a pilot grant to evaluate the benefits of hydraulic and microprocessor ankles in transtibial amputees who are limited community ambulators. The COPL funding allowed Ability to raise matching commercial funding to make the clinical study possible. The results are pending peer-review for publication in an academic journal.”
