Ottobock awards $1000 photo contest prize

Ottobock North America has named Carlos Gonzalez of San Francisco, CA, winner of its 2014 C-Leg Heroes photo contest grand prize.

Ottobock North America, which recently relocated its headquarters from Minneapolis, MN, to Austin, TX, ran the photo contest throughout 2014 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the US introduction of its above-knee microprocessor prosthetic leg. The company awarded weekly and monthly prizes, and in December 2014 selected Gonzalez as winner of the $1000 grand prize.

The winning photo submission shows Gonzalez practicing martial arts, a sport he took up after his amputation that he said helped rebuild his confidence and self-esteem.
