CAPPFUL outcome measures are psychometrically validated, peer-reviewed assessment tools designed exclusively to measure upper limb prosthetic performance during common activities created by Arm Dynamics in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
Administering CAPPFUL assessments enable our therapists to identify a patient’s functional challenges and then modify the treatment plan to improve outcomes. As a result, patients reach their maximum rehabilitation potential as quickly as possible.
CAPPFUL assessments have been administered to patients more than 120 times and are completed at key points in the rehabilitation process.

CAPROQ® and CAPROQ-S are psychometrically validated, patient-reported outcome measure tools presented in a question and answer format. They focus on the use of an upper limb prosthesis and the person’s perceptions of their prosthetic rehabilitation.
CAPROQ and CAPROQ-S assessments have been administered to patients more than 900 times at key points in the rehabilitation process.
The Wellness Inventory is a patient screening tool that helps identify psychosocial challenges that could have a negative impact on a person’s prosthetic rehabilitation process. Feedback from this survey helps us identify if additional specialized services may be helpful.
The Wellness Inventory has been administered to patients more then 400 times at key points in the rehabilitation process.
Arm Dynamics is committed to continuously improving prosthetic outcomes for people with upper limb loss or limb difference. The use of these three assessment tools provides objective data that helps us evolve our clinical care model, maximize our patients’ rehabilitation potential and improve the odds of gaining insurance approval. Our data also contributes to the development of new prosthetic technologies and techniques through our collaborations with medical professionals and prosthetic device manufacturers.
