Clever "Hipster" Harness Helps Dogs Recover from Painful Hip Problems

Owners of poor little pups who suffer from hip problems such as dysplasia may eventually be able to make use of this helpful harness to assist with such debilitating conditions. Created by industrial designer Galia Weiss, the Hipster prototype is a colorful harness concept that was developed to support a dog's femur while at the same time pulling up and strengthening the hip muscles.

Hip dysplasia is a genetic disease that can develop in a puppy as he or she grows, or it can also be caused by gender, poor diet, and a lack of exercise. Weiss's product is intended to aid in recovery while allowing a dog to maintain mobility. The Hipster wraps around a dog's body and legs, and can be attached and adjusted to different sizes with velcro straps. The harness is machine washable and comes in multiple colors.
