“Posture Check: Creative Technological Approaches" explores new ways of giving individuals real-time visual feedback on changes in their posture to help them become more aware of their stance. This research follows to create various optical outputs transmitted by a sensor integrated with the wearable device that can regularly analyse an individual’s sitting posture and assist them in improving their sitting habits. The physical prototype is a posture awareness device that detects seating positions. When a person’s posture deteriorates, the device shares the data wirelessly to a nearby computer or phone and provides real-time feedback through digital visualisation prototypes, these visualisations present different methods of notifying people about their changing posture in an unobtrusive way. The prototype result is created through an iterative design and prototyping process, with a final version being examined for its influence on posture.
