It's not that I want to slouch. I just forget. I don't like to be reminded by others because it makes me feel embarrassed. When I heard about the iPosture I knew I had to see this product in action. If anything could improve my caved in stance I was willing to try it. Iposture is a tiny circular device that has a microcomputer inside. You can hook it to your bra strap (that's what I do), wear it as a pendant, or even wear it on your chest....it is very small and discreet. The iPosture memorizes your correct posture and when you begin to slouch or hunch over it send out a gentle vibration to alert you.
I had my doubts about how well this would actually work and if it would really be able to make an impact on my poor posture. I was really surprised how it always knew the instant I began to hunch over. Even more shocking to me was the fact that it actually worked. The constant vibrating reminder to make me more aware of my posture and I would correct it each time the vibrations alerted me. The first few days it was going off all the time and now I need much less reminders. My back feels so much better. I never realized how all of my upper back pain stemmed from my hunchback stance. I think that the iPosture would be a great asset for anyone who struggles with their posture and especially for children who are in the habit of slouching. Once you make a habit of poor posture it is incredibly hard to break. Children tend to be resistant of anything their parents repetitively remind them of - the iPosture takes nagging away from the parent and replaces it with a cool gadget.
