Cutting Edge Prosthetic Ankle Joint Debuts in Oak Park

NBC5 recently featured a patient of John Angelico, CP in Scheck & Siress' Oak Park office who has been fit with the latest prosthetic device helping amputees walk.  With this computer-controlled ankle joint, the user can climb stairs easily and walk more smoothly on all sorts of terrain.  It's a huge advancement for amputees and John has fit the first on in Illinois.
