Hip replacements have a high rate of success, but those who’ve received one must ensure they’re taking care of their new joint. As the name suggests, Hip Connect puts patients in touch with their artificial joint like never before.
The wearable device fits comfortably on the leg and utilizes a series of sensors to detect motion and force. This data is transferred wirelessly to an easy-to-use app on the user’s smartphone which alerts them if they are putting their joint at risk through physical activity. Additionally, the system can help make lifestyle suggestions so the user can remain active and healthy while getting the most out of their implant.
