Artificial limb experts help Swansea man on path to Paralympics

In Wales, around 3,500 amputees wear prosthetic limbs. 21-year-old Scott Stevens, who got his from the Artificial Limb and Appliance Centre in Swansea, now hopes to one day compete in the Paralympics.

"I realise how much I've got to make the most of what I've got," he says.

"Not that I say that I'm disadvantaged at all because if anything it's put me at an advantage. I try harder, I'm more willing to stick at things and drive to achieve all I can."
