New funding for sports prosthetics for children with disabilities

The government has announced a further £1.5 million so that more children with disabilities can benefit from the latest sports and activity prosthetics.

The announcement is the next stage of a government fund that has supported 220 disabled children since its launch in March 2016. It means more children who have suffered limb loss or who were born with a limb deficiency will benefit from prosthetics such as running blades. The fund will also support research and innovation to improve prosthetic technology.
