Lost Legs, not Lost Hope: Amputee in Wheelchair Builds Dynamic Medical Equipment Services Company
Anthony Filippis is a legend. The son of Italian immigrants who struggled through the Great Depression, Anthony was involved in a train accident in Detroit at the age of 13, which required the amputation of both his legs below the knee.
Filippis faced a lot of discrimination in the workplace, including many firings, until he teamed up with Carl Wright, the man who had constructed his artificial legs. The two men formed Wright & Filippis, one of the nation’s leading medical equipment service companies, providing everything from wheelchair ramps to artificial limbs.
Filippis’ unique talent and unrelenting quest to improve the lives of people with disabilities including his own is an inspiration.
