Posture Pal @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

from Justin Shenk via hackster.io

Posture Pal monitors your posture during computer usage to provide user feedback and analytics, and support mindfulness and physical health.

Millions of people spend 7-8 hours a day sitting in front of their computers. One common trait is apparent among people with improper computer usage: a head-forward posture. Since people usually sit while using a computer, people also tend to slouch and bend their spine into a curve as well.

Neck pain caused by improper computer usage can be prevented through mindfulness training without the need for uncomfortable equipment.

This head forward posture has been shown to exert considerable pressure on the human neck. A normal human head weighs around 10 to 12 pounds (4.54 kg). An assessment of stresses found that a 15 degrees head forward posture increased the effective weight on the neck portion of the spine to 27 pounds (12.25 kg). According to one study, work-related neck pain is twice as likely for those sitting with 20 degree neck flexion.
