Heenan’s Posture.io demonstrated at the Disrupt NY Hackathon combines a Bluetooth Low Energy sensor attached to the back of an office chair with velcro and an adhesive magnetic rubber strip that’s stuck to the back of the wearer’s belt. The sensor detects the distance and angle of the magnetic strip on the belt to find whether the wearer is slouching or sitting up straight. The app uses that data for tracking the wearer’s posture score and encourages them to slouch less. The wearer’s goal is to keep the posture score as close to 100 as possible. Within the app, Posture.io displays a large graphic of the user’s posture with their posture score and also integrates with the menu bar to display a discreet reminder of how the wearer is currently sitting.
