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.
In 1958, a U.S.A.-based corporate headquarters was established in Minneapolis, Minnesota under the name Ottobock. As of April 2014[update], Ottobock is currently relocating their headquarters to Austin, Texas. The logistics facility will relocate to Louisville, Kentucky, and manufacturing will be moved to Salt Lake City, Utah.
