because 90% of people worldwide who need access to assistive technology, including prosthetic devices, cannot access it. Even fewer receive quality, comprehensive, long-term care, and support. (World Health Organization, Assistive Technologies 2018)
Prosthesis Product Narrative - ATScale
in equal access to prosthetic services that facilitate independence through mobility. We recognize the dual hardships of living in poverty with a disability, and stand in solidarity with those who suffer from an unequal distribution of care. We understand that disability is caused by broken devices and broken healthcare systems – not broken bodies – and we work to increase the mobility, visibility, and dignity of all those marginalized by lack of access to rehabilitative technology.
ROMP believes that access to mobility is a human right regardless of financial well-being, race, gender, orientation, or any other common barrier to care.
A world where every person with limb loss has mobility.
MISSION: ROMP’s mission is to ensure access to high-quality prosthetic care for underserved people, improving their mobility and independence.
ROMP Defines Mobility as:
- Essential - mobility is a human right.
- Multifaceted - the prosthesis alone is not enough.
- Community-based - services work best where patients live.
- Physical mobility - the way we move is an expression of our humanity.
- Mental mobility - to overcome the limitations of our bodies, we must overcome the limitations of our minds.
- Economic mobility - becoming more economically stable.
- Social mobility - growing within family and community.
