Our Story

Walking and Wheeling was launched in October of 2005 by Peter Jacques, PT to meet the orthotic needs of children in Northeast Wisconsin who were Wisconsin Medicaid recipients. Since 2005 we have expanded to serve the needs of children for orthotics, mobility and positioning throughout the entire state of Wisconsin. We started with just one child for one ankle foot orthotic, and now serve over 600 different children per year with over a 100 different products, and services. We also meet the rehab equipment needs of many schools and clinics. Peter began the business in a small office in his home, and used his garage to store equipment, and now operates the business in a state of the art 1800 square foot facility. Walking and Wheeling has served children and their families in the family’s home, in daycares, schools, medical clinics, therapy facilities, and at our main office location. Our patients and clients come from a vast variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, and diagnoses.

There is opportunity in every situation for positivity. The challenges of any disability are far outweighed by the joy each child brings to us each day.
