Chances are, you’re slouching while reading this.And if you’re like us, the minute someone calls you out on your slouching or even just says the word “posture,” you immediately straighten up. Now there’s a device called PosturePulse, which recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, that reminds you throughout the day to sit up straight. Um, so much easier than stacking books on your head.
PosturePulse is a belt that uses biofeedback.It vibrates whenever you throw your back out of whack by slouching or slumping. The device comes pre-programmed so there are no apps to download, no uploading data, and no computers needed. You just wrap the PosturePulse around your waist or attach it to a chair so that its thin, vibrating module rests against your lower back, and it will gently and silently vibrate whenever you slump down for more than seven seconds. The subtle reminder to sit up helps train your body to correct its posture.Great posture gives you an instant beauty boost!Good posture comes with a whole host of health and beauty benefits, including making you look taller and slimmer. Having good posture also prevents backaches, decreases stress on your ligaments, keeps the bones and joints in proper alignment, and prevents fatigue since the muscles are being used more efficiently, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
Bottom line: So it’s not the prettiest thing we’ve ever seen, but our posture can use all the help it can get! We’ll wear this under our clothes for an instant jolt of health and beauty.
