The Koalaa ALX is a slip-on-and-go prosthetic made of soft fabric with interchangeable tools. It’s as comfortable as your favourite pair of trainers yet as versatile as a multitool. With Koalaa there are no hospital visits, no messy plaster casts, no blisters, no fuss: just you and your potential. Inspired by training shoes, the ALX sleeve seamlessly blends comfort, flexibility and rigidity, enabling it to provide support and function, whilst being lightweight and comfortable. The ALX also comes in different sizes, allowing production to occur on a mass scale and more economically.
