The original facility was founded by John Kemmler in 1955 at a time when orthotic and prosthetic services were not readily available to the area, and operated as a proprietorship. The business was purchased in 1969 by Siegfried Jesswein C.P.O., and a corporation was formed under the name of Jesswein Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc. and continued its operation until February of 1975. At this time Edward L. Teter C.P. purchased the corporation initially changing the name to Teter and Jesswein, Inc. and then to the current name of Teter Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc. In 1976, Teter Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. opened a satellite office in Petoskey, Michigan and in 1986 a second satellite office was opened in Gaylord, Michigan. In 1991, the corporation was purchased by Michael L. Teter, C.P.O. As demand increased other offices were opened throughout Northern Michigan in Cadillac, Grayling, Manistee, Alpena, Big Rapids, Muskegon and Ludington. The corporation is dedicated to the development and delivery of quality orthotic and prosthetic services throughout Michigan.
