Posture correction smart sensor helps you sit or stand upright

It’s easy to adopt a bad posture either while sitting in front of a computer or while walking and your mobile, and over time this may lead to unaesthetic and/or painful postural disorders.

To solve this issue, a posture correction smart sensor may be used in place of a posture belt with what looks like a GPS tracker placed on the back of the patient, and which notifies bad postures by vibrating and to your smartphone depending on a user-configured angle range.

Specifications listed for the posture-correction-smart-sensor:

  • Sensor – Unnamed Bosch gravity sensor
  • Connectivity  – Bluetooth 4.2
  • Misc
    • Medical-grade gel patch to attach the device to the bag
    • Vibration motor
  • Battery – 200mAh; 30 minutes charge good for about 5 days when using it for about 8 hours per day
  • Dimensions – 6 x 4 x 1.2 cm
  • Weight – 16 grams.

The device ships with a micro USB cable for charging.

The mobile application allows the user to set the angle range, as well as the strength and length of vibrations. I found the device on GearBest but they did not provide a user manual nor a link to the mobile app(s).

While I never saw anybody wear those myself, because in most cases they are hidden under clothes, I noticed this type of “posture coach” or “posture trainer” has been available for a while with for example https://amzn.to/3j2Gd2X that has mixed reviews with some people needing to buying expensive adhesives separately.
