A teenager with cerebral palsy is hoping a machine will help him avoid major surgery to have his hips removed.
Sam Deakin, 16, from Portsmouth, has already undergone four operations on his hips which mean he is no longer able to walk with a frame.
He has been trialling a training machine from Norway called the Innowalk. His mother says it has significantly reduced his pain.
The machine costs £25,000 and is not available on the NHS.
