Slouch Screamer !@?!
Do not let your form compromise function! THE POSTURE THEORY by M.A.Banfield© states that bad posture or form compromises bodily function. Slouching contributes to pressure on organs and stress and tension in muscular structure. This is bad for body business.
The Slouch Screamer!@?! is a wearable posture sensor with a whimsical approach to an upright and centered self. A flex sensor is placed on the axis of hypochondria. When the wearer slouches, an audible scream is heard and the scream intensifies with angle of compression. Vibration motors also cue upright behavior.
To test the posture theory, we conducted this chair study. Kristin tried all spinal slouching options. Then, we mapped the movement of the spine.
• = head o = tailbone. We found that the most movement feedback was indeed found in the axis of hypochondria, under the sternum. This resolved the placement of the sensor.
