Get Ready to ROMP: The Range of Motion Projects Wants to Get Your Family Moving!

posted by:

Calling all Rocky Mountain families, it’s time to get motivated for you, your community, and others around the world—it’s the annual Range of Mobility Project (ROMP) climb!

First, what is ROMP? ROMP is a technology based nonprofit organization, which provides high quality prosthetic care in underserved populations, thus enhancing mobility and unlocking human potential. ROMP believes that prosthetic limbs and orthotic braces are not simply medical devices, but instruments of personal empowerment. ROMP recognizes the dual hardships of living in poverty with a disability, and stand in solidarity with those who are made to suffer from an unequal distribution of care.

Since 2005, ROMP has seen over 6,000 patients with custom-made prosthetic and orthotic devices in Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico, Haiti, Pakistan, and the US. The organization believes that training locals to provide ongoing services in their communities is the only way to fix a long-term problem.
