We’re here for the superheroes

Nate from Koalaa LTD makes custom-built prosthetic limbs with clip-on tools that change the lives of children with limb difference. It started with a university project, and now he’s on the Forbes ‘30 under 30’ list for helping kids do everything they’re meant to – even the really messy stuff.
