The Past: The Human (De)Evolution
Posture has always been an integral part of what it means to be human. Standing on two legs was the evolutionary trick that launched our species ahead of our fellow hominoids. Unfortunately, as our society has advanced, many of us spend more time sitting at desks than standing, and our posture has degraded along with this trend. This postural regression has led to a variety of musculoskeletal ailments, particularly neck and back issues.
The Future: Re-learn Strong Posture with a Little Coaching
This conundrum inspired us to leverage our technology in the struggle to overcome poor posture. Many say bad posture is one of the top habits they’d like to break. The challenge, then, becomes paying attention long enough to form new habits when your mind is on your work or other tasks. That’s where our product comes in, gently reminding you when you’ve lapsed like a watchful friend.
Keeping an eye on your entire spine, not just a segment like your neck or lower back, the Electronic Posture Aid simultaneously coaches cervical, thoracic, lumbar segments and abdominal muscle posture. It can be used by anyone, without impeding freedom of motion.
By elastically spanning cervical, thoracic, and lumbar segments, our device monitors the spine segments in concert, not in isolation. This collective monitoring is both necessary for true postural evaluation and a unique attribute of our technology.
How it Works: Magnetic Distance Sensing
The Electronic Posture Aid constantly evaluates the position of your neck and back via a magnetic sensor, measuring flux density as a proxy for distance. Recognizing the characteristics of your desired posture, it gives you friendly reminders when your posture collapses beyond a threshold you set for yourself.
How to Use: 30 Minutes Per Day
Recognizing that some postural variability is every bit as important as avoiding prolonged slouching, using our devices only 30 minutes per day is optimal for establishing proper posture. This ideal 30-minutes is long enough to adjust kinesthetic pathways in the brain and short enough that developing muscles stay strong and limber.
For younger users, these products offer coaching before biomechanical regression occurs, training proper posture in harmony with modern habits from the start.
Are you constantly reminding your loved ones to sit or stand straight? Are they always reminding you? Maintaining correct posture during work and activities is one of the first steps in prevention of neck and back pain. Our innovative Electronic Posture Aid helps you assume and maintain proper posture by continuously monitoring back and neck alignment and providing real-time feedback. The device’s microprocessor analyzes ergonomics and alerts you of incorrect posture by triggering sensory feedback signals.
• User-friendly keypad sets degree of flexion and extension beyond which the feedback mechanism is triggered
• Adjustable cordlock ensures comfortable fit
• Audio, visual, or tactile feedback options
• Charger Included
The electronic Posture Aid is ready for use right out of the box. No apps required.
The Back Story On Back Pain
Lower back pain affects half of all American in the workplace each year. Many people go to work in pain, but at least 83 million workdays are lost each year due to musculoskeletal disorders. Back pain leads people to spend 2 1/2 times more for healthcare annually than for those without it. The total cost of missed work and treatment is over $50 billion per year.
To combat back pain, the suggested remedies are often anti-inflammatories and pain relievers, exercise, massage, rest, and sometimes surgery. These techniques address the symptoms but not the cause, which is often related to posture. Now, with the introduction of the Electronic Posture Aid, people whether at home at home or work can improve posture problems related to back pain.
Back pain and neck pain often result from:
• Overstressing the back by moving objects that are too heavy
• Repetitive movement
• Slouching or failing to use the correct posture for the task at hand
• Factors such as smoking, being overweight, being in poor physical condition, feeling stressed or sleeping poorly can put additional pressure on the spine and cause it to age prematurely
One very effective way to improve posture during work and even exercise is to use the Electronic Back Brace by Neurospectrum. The brace features a scapular design that lies on the shoulder and extends to the waist in front and back. Equipped with an electronic biofeedback unit, the device will signal you when you have poor posture during sitting, standing, and other activities.
How Good Posture Helps
The bones and joints in the body are aligned in a specific way for proper functioning; problems occur when improper posture replaces the correct way to sit, stand, lie, and move. Both good and bad posture are learned behaviors. Good posture:
• Assures that you are using muscles properly
• Reduces wear and tear on joint surfaces and ligaments
• Discourages the spine from adopting abnormal position
• Lessens muscle fatigue due to efficient use
• Prevents overuse and strain
• Prevents or reduces backache and muscle pain
• Improves appearance
Using the Neurospectrum Electronic Back Brace discourages bad posture and keeps you on track with alerts that encourage good posture habits prescribed to enhance overall back health.
Available online, this new device does not require a prescription, and can be an effective addition to your back pain treatment plan. You can wear it to work, whether you lift boxes in the warehouse or do most of your work sitting in the office.
