The NHS is looking to help kids who are missing one or more limbs get into sport by providing them with special prosthetics designed for sport.

This is the first time these prosthetics, or replacement limbs, will be available for kids on the NHS.

They will include running blades, swim fins and arm attachments to help kids play sports such as basketball.
