Marko Cheseto: "Everything is Possible with Determination"
Since Marko, a star runner at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, tragically lost both his lower limbs below the knee to frostbite, Northern Orthopedics has partnered with Ossur to get Marko back to doing what he loves. Now that he is running again, he's set his sights on the Brazil Paralympics.

Please sign the White House Petition to rescind the proposal restricting access to prosthetic limbs
Medicare, through its contractors, has proposed new coverage, coding, and clinical care guidelines that would have a profoundly negative impact on amputees across the United States.
If implemented, the policy installs new barriers that would limit and potentially deny access to appropriate prosthetic care. It eliminates coverage for certain prosthetic devices that amputees depend on for every step they take every day. It even would preclude amputees from using a prosthesis if they failed to meet the entirely nebulous and subjective standard of "the appearance of natural gait" while using the prosthesis.
Equally troublesome, the proposed policy contains no references to clinical or medical evidence supporting the changes.
For all of these reasons, the draft policy should be rescinded.
