Prosthesis advance offers new hope for amputees

24 March 2014 Last updated at 08:18 GMT

For many amputees, adapting to life after losing a limb is challenging - and while technology has advanced in recent years, prosthetic limbs can be uncomfortable and even painful to use.

Now a clinical study is trialling a new prosthesis, which aims to ease that discomfort by attaching a metal implant in the bone.

Michael Lloyd is a part of that study and spoke to BBC Breakfast to explain why the implant had made a difference to his life.

He said: "It's revolutionised my life. It really has made things so, so much easier."
