Brian Baer/ Special to The Bee

Jon Bik plays soccer at Elvie Perazzo Briggs Park in Folsom with his daughter Arianna Bik, 10, on his state-of-the-art microprocessor knee prosthetic. He recently became the first recipient in the region of the most advanced bionic knee, which allows moving sideways, backwards as well as climbing stairs. It’s part high tech and part sci-fi since this knee operates on microprocessors and gyroscopes.
