The FY11 PRORP Technology Development Award (TDA) is being offered to support the development and testing of an upper extremity prosthetic system that capitalizes on and augments existing body-powered prostheses to create an evolutionary externally powered prosthesis. More specifically, the PRORP seeks applications for research projects to develop a modular, interoperable, three-degrees-of-freedom, externally powered prosthetic wrist with a one-degree-of-freedom terminal device and accompanying control strategies. Interest is in candidate solutions and prototype systems that are developed enough to support refinement and initial feasibility testing during the performance period of the award. Redesigning existing devices to improve features such as weight and size may be considered as within the scope of this Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity provided the alterations equate to significant improvements in clinical utility. Systems that are extensible across multiple manufacturers through open systems architecture are preferred, as are solutions that demonstrate compatibility with other prosthetic systems in development, thereby increasing options available to consumers.
