Description: The FY17 OPORP Orthotics and Prosthetics Outcomes Research Award (OPORA) challenges the scientific community to address which orthotic and prosthetic devices generate the best patient outcomes. Outcomes focused research is used to support evidence-based practice which guides providers in the optimization of care to Service members and Veterans with limb loss and/or limb impairment. It is expected that any research findings will also provide benefit to the general population. Applications involving multidisciplinary collaborations among academia, industry, the military Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and other Federal Government agencies are highly encouraged. The FY17 OPORP OPORA is intended to support research that evaluates the comparative effectiveness of orthotic and prosthetic devices using patient-centric outcomes for Service members and Veterans who have undergone limb amputation. The FY17 OPORP OPORA is focused on outcomes-based best practices through analysis of the merits of prosthetic and orthotic device options currently available, not on the development of new, or the improvement of existing, technology. The intent of the award is to generate clinically useful evidence that will enhance and optimize patient outcomes. The FY17 OPORP OPORA offers funding for two Funding Levels. The following are generalized descriptions of the scope of research appropriate for each Funding Level: Funding Level 1/New Investigator: This level is for new investigators only, and may support pilot research without preliminary data or research that is already supported by preliminary data and has the potential to make significant advancements toward clinical translation. Specific eligibility details are provided in Section II.C, Eligibility Information. Funding Level 2: Research that is supported by preliminary data and has the potential to make significant advancements toward clinical translation.
