The boss was quite touched and agreed to help raise money to help the boy whose determination has hardened the auto world. The company asked prosthetics specialists Touch Bionics to create a customized i-LIMB Pulse, which will help Matthew grip a pen to draw pictures and write, tie his shoelaces and catch a ball with ease.
