The term posture is used to describe how your body is positioned when you’re sitting, standing and lying down. Good posture means your bones are properly aligned and your muscles, joints and ligaments can work as nature intended. It means your vital organs are in the right position and can function at peak efficiency.
There is a growing number of wearables that want to make sure your posture is correct. The latest devices that is about to hit the market is called Poze.
Essential reading: Wearables that help you with your posture
What makes Poze different, is that it tries to cut the noise and focus on the real problem – avoiding bad habits. There is no app, no charging and no diagrams. Well-balanced power consumption enables the battery to last for up to a year, so you can forget charging too.
Poze has only one button. When the device is on, Poze records your posture and creates a reference point. Sensor technology calculates the angle of your position, so if you slouch 15 degrees or more, Poze will send a silent buzz after 1 minute, reminding you to straighten back up.
Attach Poze with a self adhesive hypo-allergenic strip (included with device) near your collar bone or on your clothes and straighten up. That’s it!
You start with 15 minutes a day, and then over the next few weeks increase it gradually to a few hours per day. In a month, your muscles with remember your new posture and sitting straight will be your new, normal Poze.
