Click Medical, headquartered in Steamboat Springs, Colo, announces the following Limb Loss Awareness Month promotion: For every RevoFit and RevoLock prosthetics kit sold during the month of April, Click Medical will donate $1 to the global non-profit Range of Motion Project (ROMP).
The funds will go directly to providing prosthetic and orthotic care to those without access to these services, according to a news release.
“Every time you use a Click Medical kit this month, know that you are not only helping your patient and yourself with the benefits of adjustability, but you are also helping someone in an underserved population get the prosthetic care they need.”
— Jen Howland, Click Medical’s Vice President of Marketing
In developing countries, amputation is more prevalent while access to prosthetic care is less available. The World Health Organization estimates that nine out of 10 people worldwide who need assistive technologies including prosthetic care cannot access it, the release continues.
“Working in low resource countries and rural communities warrants a major need for adjustability in sockets. This is a necessary solution for our patients who cannot access regular visits to a clinic for socket changes, as well as the everyday comfort that amputees deserve in their pursuit of mobility. RevoFit technology gives our patients the ability to micro adjust themselves.”
— ROMP co-founder David Krupa
“We are proud to partner with ROMP and we fully support their mission to provide high-quality prosthetic devices to underserved populations. ROMP has worked tirelessly over the past 15 years to create sustainable programs that provide mobility to thousands of people across two continents. Empowering people with mobility and adjustability are common goals that we believe in and constantly pursue. We are excited to be working with ROMP and help assist in their effort to unlock the human potential within these emerging markets.”
— Click Medical co-founder Joe Mahon
“Click’s partnership with ROMP is truly special. Not only do we have alignment on our individual company missions as we grow awareness of Click Technology but we get to share profound ideas to further the commitment to all amputees worldwide. What ROMP has done and will do leaves us not only inspired but motivated to think bigger.”
