A seven-year-old girl is looking forward to a very special Christmas this year - thanks to the clever creation of one young graduate.
Evie Hopkins, from Swansea, has cerebral palsy, which affects all four of her limbs as well as her balance and mobility.
She can't sit unaided without toppling over, which once made simple pleasures like wrapping Christmas presents, a day out or even eating a meal at the table a struggle.
But thanks to a specially designed seat known as the Scallop, Evie is now able to join in with her family and friends.
The Scallop was created by Keira Gwynn, a product design graduate of University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
Keira, 23, then developed her idea with R82, a company that specialises in seating, standing and walking aids for children.
As a result of the project, Keira now has a full time job with the company.
The Scallop has adjustable sides which close as the user sits back, supporting the person but also giving them the freedom to move.
It isn't designed to replace other aids like a wheelchair, but is an option that can be used alongside them - particularly as it is light and portable.
It has proven particularly useful at the family's local beach, which they rarely visited before due to the challenges it posed for Evie.
Sports-mad Evie is now looking forward to going to more rugby and football matches, and has recently enjoyed her first pantomime.
She has also been able to use the Scallop in school, which has helped her to feel more engaged with her friends.
