Back pain due to bad posture while sitting (and spending too long in a seated position), too little exercise and underdeveloped muscles is a very widespread problem. Smart Orthosis is designed to help correct unhealthy body habits and to use electrical impulses to improve posture. Worn as a smart top, the garment has warm patches and vibration elements embedded in it to help ease acute back pain. The garment can be connected to the wearer’s smartphone via Bluetooth, so the he or she can adjust and control its functioning via an app. As the Smart Orthosis takes the form of a tight-fitting top, it can be worn almost invisibly under everyday clothing.
