The 'Hip Connect' is a piece of technology that is designed to be worn on the leg after hip replacement surgery in order to enable users to know if they are placing too much stress on their artificial joint.

Conceptually designed by Vinay Bhajantri, the 'Hip Connect' is worn on the leg and incorporates a series of sensors that work to detect motion and force. The data that the 'Hip Connect' collects is then transmitted to the user's smartphone in order to let them know if they are working too hard as they work out or go about their daily routine.

The 'Hip Connect' also works to provide lifestyle suggestions for those who have had hip replacement surgery to make sure they can enjoy life to the fullest.
