Stephen A. Schulte CP, LP, FAAOP, Head Practitioner
Stephen, along with his team at ProCare Prosthetics and Orthotics, played a vital role in the beginning process of Jarryd's life as an amputee. In their first meeting together, Stephen and his team shined light onto what Jarryd's life as an amputee would look like. They were with him every step of the way leading into his amputation and have become like a family since his amputation. Stephen's drive to make the most advanced legs on the market, mixed with his creativity and new found knowledge of track and field have given Jarryd a leg of his own, literally.
