Healthcare Technology – Boost your posture
We love healthcare technology here at Netshock. In my mind, solving human imperfection is the perfect application of technology.
Specifically, let’s talk about posture – so many of us are guilty of letting our posture get worse, without doing anything to rectify the situation. In fact, I hate to say it, but I am sat at my desk right now, and am certain that my posture is not as it should be.
We know that it’s bad for us, but it’s comfortable – so we slouch over our desks as we work. I like to think of it like chocolate, it’s bad for me, I know it is, but I love it and still eat it.
Now though, we have technologies which are helping us control our diet. Apps like My Fitness Pal are being downloaded by millions of people as we attempt to cut out our bad habits and improve our fitness and well being. So we see, as soon as fitness technology is available to us, we all jump on the bandwagon and try to better ourselves.
Until now, there hasn’t been much technology out there to help improve your posture. Now though, we have Upright Pose who have made a clever little widget that vibrates every time our spine is not aligned as it should be. This attaches to your back using hypo-allergenic adhesives and is extremely discrete.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to use it all the time, just an hour a day is enough to make a noticeable difference.
