U.K. engineers concoct adaptable prosthetic

U.K. engineers think they've come up with a way to make prosthetic limbs fit better--an adaptable socket.

While the work is in its early stages, the hope is that the advance will eventually help the devices to fit more snugly and allow better mobility for amputees. More
