Scots academics help Colombian amputees

A team of scientists at Strathclyde University has developed a service offering high quality artificial limbs to people on low incomes in Colombia.

The so-called "Leg Bank" will help people in the South American country who have been injured by landmines.

The team has developed sockets, known as Majicast, which fit prostheses securely to patients' residual limbs.

More than 10,000 people in Colombia have been killed or injured by the devices in the past 25 years.
