Vibrating Posture Corrector Will Remind You To Pick Yourself Back Up When You Begin to Slouch
20 August 2021
We're all guilty of slouching from time to time. The problem is, it can be a really difficult habit to break. But now, one Amazon gadget is here to change all that.
You simply place it on your back and it'll remind you to straighten up with a gentle vibration whenever you begin to slouch.
It connects to an app on your phone which helps track your progress and create your own personalized goals, too.
It's not waterproof, though, so make sure you take it off before you shower!
"It's very easy to use, and importantly - very low profile. Even with tight-fitting ladies' clothes, when you place it between your shoulder blades there will be no visible outline. You use the smartphone app to calibrate the device. You can set the sensitivity of the device, which changes how much you need to slouch for it to vibrate. This is great because if you need to, for example, hand-write, then you will have to bend your neck down a little, and reducing sensitivity this won't cause the device to go crazy. Also, you can set the delay for how long you need to slouch for it to vibrate - this is also great because, in real life, you sometimes need to bend down to a desk drawer and then don't want the device to start buzzing. In terms of effectiveness: it really does know when you're slouching, and my posture is improving even when I'm not wearing it! (I get a creepy 'phantom buzz' when I slouch and am not wearing it, like when you think your phone vibrates but it doesn't...). Note though that initially, you may only be able to wear it and sit up straight for 10-15 minutes, it's hard on the back muscles at first," says one customer who rated the product 5-stars.
