EAST PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island Limb Co., a 75-year-old, third-generation, family-owned prosthetic and orthotic practice, is adding physical therapy to its services.
“We are very excited to join the expertise of prosthetics, orthotics and physical therapy to create a dynamic team to meet the needs of the community,” Rhode Island Limb said in a statement.
The business will host an open house to launch its new physical therapy clinic in East Greenwich at 63 Cedar Ave., Unit 2, on April 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. to allow the public to tour the new facility and enjoy light refreshments.
Owner Jonathan Teoli has worked at the family business, Rhode Island Limb Co. in Cranston, for 19 years, the last five side by side with his father, the second-generation owner, before his retirement.
Teoli’s grandfather, Albert, who had lost a leg to a Japanese sniper in 1945 during World War II, bought a half ownership in the company and eventually worked to acquire the whole thing, according to a Providence Journal article posted on the Rhode Island Limb website.
In addition to its East Greenwich location, the company has offices in Pawtucket and Middletown.
