Intelligent Hip Device Monitors Bone Implants
Smart Hip is a new medical device that can monitor the performance of bone implants from within the body.
Clara Frias, a doctoral student from the University of Porto in Portugal has created an innovative medical device called the Smart Hip. This intelligent device is a network of capsules, sensors and actuators which are placed on the hip implant of a patient. The network, connected through a computer via wireless Bluetooth, sends critical information to the doctor that can help detect and prevent further health problems after hip joint surgery.
