Funding Research Applications for 2019/20

This year Peke Waihanga - Artificial Limb Service is making available a Contestable Research Fund of $20,000 to promote research into issues that will benefit amputees. It is anticipated that the programme would be suitable, though not necessarily limited to, summer studentships.

Applications for this round are now being accepted. Peke Waihanga likes to be able to fund more than one project each year should they meet the necessary criteria. 

Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) research on:

  • rehabilitation/gait
  • clinical aspects
  • amputee pathways
  • components/materials
  • prevention strategies - especially in the areas of vascular disease and diabetes
  • related topics with a focus on engineering/bio-mechanics

Research proposals for the 2019/20 year are open now and we will be open to receiving them throughout 2019. 

Decisions on funding will be made by the Peke Waihanga - Artificial Limb Service Board and will be final, based on recommendations by the Board's Research Committee.
