PRIORITI-MTF Study- Testing Patient Response to the IDEO
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||leg injuries, trauma|
|Sponsor||Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium|
|Collaborator||United States Department of Defense|
|Start date||June 2014|
|End date||December 2016|
|Trial size||90 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02158884, W81XWH-12-2-0032|
The goal of the PRIORITI-MTF study is to help determine whether a new type of custom designed brace, called the IDEO ™ along with a physical therapy program, called Return to Run, improves physical function. This brace was developed for wounded warriors who wanted to return to an active lifestyle.
The primary objective of this study is to examine the benefits (and cost-benefits) of an integrated orthotic and rehabilitation program that incorporates the Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis (IDEO) and the Return to Run (RTR) physical therapy regimen, but designed for scalability in the broader military environment (i.e. beyond San Antonio Military Medical Center where the program was developed)
