Ottobock, Minneapolis, Minnesota, has established the C-Leg 15-Year Anniversary Photo Contest as part of its celebration to mark the arrival of the C-Leg in the United States in 1999. The contest asks users of C-Legs or another prosthetic product to submit photos or videos showing how the product has changed their lives. One winning photo or video will be chosen each month through November 2014 with the typical prize being an iPad or GoPro camera. A grand prize of $1,000 will be awarded in December.
Ottobock has announced that Kevin Flatt of Cookeville, Tennessee, is the first winner. Flatt’s winning photo, which netted him an iPad mini, captures him taking on the challenge of a rock climbing wall with his young daughter, Kaitlyn. He has been a C-Leg user since the loss of his leg as a result of a dirt bike accident nearly four years ago.
