Ken Cornell

Our Story

In the vibrant tapestry of Cornell’s history, the story began in 1985 when our founders, identical brothers Ken and Keith, inspired by a shared passion for building and creating, embarked on a remarkable journey to open Cornell Orthotics and Prosthetics. Their roots in craftsmanship were nurtured at their grandfather’s workshop, a space where imagination took flight, and the art of designing and building became second nature to them.

From an early age, the brothers were drawn to the intersection of medicine and creativity. Their upbringing in the workshop fueled a desire to pursue a career that seamlessly blended their love for building with a profound interest in healthcare. It was this ambition that led them to the dynamic field of orthotics and prosthetics, a discipline where medicine, art, and design converge to shape the future of patient care.

Over the decades, Cornell has grown into a beacon of excellence within the orthotics and prosthetics industry. The brothers’ commitment to innovation and their dual expertise in medicine and design propelled Cornell to the forefront of the field. Their journey, which started as a childhood dream in their grandfather’s workshop, has evolved into a legacy of nearly 40 years, making Cornell one of the top companies in orthotics and prosthetics.

Today, the company stands as a testament to the enduring power of passion, perseverance, and a vision that bridges the realms of medicine and creativity. Cornell’s impact on the orthotics and prosthetics landscape is a reflection of the brothers’ dedication to pushing boundaries, creating solutions, and enriching lives. As they continue to build on their legacy, Cornell remains synonymous with innovation, quality, and a steadfast commitment to the well-being of those they serve.
