PRIORITI-MTF Study

PRIORITI-MTF Study

 

Patient Response to an Integrated Orthotic and Rehabilitation Initiative

for Traumatic Injuries

 

Co-Principal Investigators: LTC Joe Hsu, MD and Ellen MacKenzie, PhD

 

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). The secondary objectives of the study are to 1) document patterns of device use, use of ambulatory aids, shoe wear and patient reported satisfaction associated with the Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis (IDEO); and 2) to assess the economic impact of the PRIORITI program by (i) measuring one-year costs associated with participation in PRIORITI and compare these costs to those projected under standard of care; and (ii) estimating lifetime cost-effectiveness of the PRIORITI program relative to standard of care.

 

This study is being funded by DoD TATRC and CRMRP (award number W81XWH-12-2-0032).
