Did you know that 8 out of 10 people will experience back pain at least once throughout their lives? Or that the prevalence of back pain in the world is on the increase? I have had a scoliosis operation on my spine and I still suffer from back pain especially when I work. Considering my poor posture while working, I started to think of our daily life and of times that we have back pain. Today, we are living connected to technology, working all day long, taking care of the house, carrying loads of things and rushing through life. When the day ends we are exhausted with backache... We don’t work on sitting straight, or think about how much we are capable of carrying or if we are leaning towards one side to carry everything.

We don’t pay attention if we are sitting straight, how much we are capable of carrying or if we are leaning towards a side to carry them all. We don’t know how we should bend forward correctly to pick up something or to tie our shoes. We don’t even question if we are walking properly.

I wanted us to be aware of our body so that we can have a correct posture. Correcting poor posture is a process. I tried to simplify this process with an accessory and application that will help you to train yourself to adopt the proper posture. First, you will detect your posture problem and track your posture to see your improvement. The part of your body causing bad posture will become noticeable with a gentle vibration. For an effective improvement you will have the chance to experience quick and fun ways of exercising with your selfie camera! You can customize your accessory by selecting your preferred style and colour for various occasions. Just pick the gem you want and combine it with the unique styles available!
