Our Mission

At Koalaa we hope to build a great community and provide a peer to peer service whereby our limb buddies, who have personal experience with limb difference, support our users in exploring how soft prosthetics could support their lifestyle. We hope to provide people worldwide with affordable prostheses and a community they can contact.

What do we offer?

We currently have the ALX and the Paww available on our store.

 

The ALX is a slip-on-and-go prosthetic arm made up of a soft fabric and interchangeable tools. 

The Paww is the same soft fabric and tools but designed for users with partial-hand limb difference.

The aim of this soft-shell design is to be as comfortable as your favourite pair of trainers, but multifunctional like the best builder's tool box.

Meet the wearers

At Koalaa we think it is important to share experience, listen and be empathetic with our users. Also, as the idea of soft prosthetics is so new, we have created a Facebook Group for those to share their experiences for the benefit of others.
 
This group is exclusively for our users as a safe space to share stories and advice. 

If you’d like to join the community simply request to join on Facebook.

Awards

Over the past year we are honoured to have received a Special Prize from Techstyles 2020 and an Honourable Mention from the Design Intelligence Awards 2020.
