CAPITAL PROSTHETICS & ORTHOTICS STAFF
Chase Brown, CPO, Practice Founder and Clinical Manager
Chase's story begins on his 13th birthday when his mom took him and a few friends to a skateboard park in Dallas, TX. While skating, Chase noticed that one of the other kids at the park was exceptionally talented. When Chase realized that the kid was wearing a prosthetic leg, he was filled with inspiration. A seed was planted in Chase at this young age and he dreamed of being able to create prosthetics that would allow people with disabilities to live active lifestyles and pursue their dreams just like the kid at the skateboard park. (The “kid” was actually Jon Comer who went on to become a professional skateboarder). Read more of Chase's story here.
