Description

In this digital age, many people spend hours every day looking at their cell phones and computers. Overuse of these devices can result in users' posture deterioration. Poor postures not only detract from a person's appearance but can also lead to chronic back discomfort and inflammation. Even though everyone knows the detrimental effects of poor postures, it is difficult for them to correct their bad habits. This is because poor postures are gradually developed, and they are usually related to a person's lifestyle. The purpose of this project was to embed a poor posture detector (a posture coach) into clothing so that users could wear it unobtrusively and comfortably. Its functions were to detect and alert users of poor postures, to help the users maintain proper postures continuously, and to help users correct their habits related to bad postures.
