It was founded in 1919 by its namesake prosthetist, Otto Bock (1881–1960). It was created in response to the large number of injured veterans from World War I.
The Otto Bock Corporation has been responsible for several innovations in prosthetics, including the pyramid adapter (a highly adjustable linkage for prosthetic parts) and the C-Leg, a computerized knee that adaptively varies its passive resistance to suit the patients' different walking gaits.
