Imagine a computer screen that could help you keep better posture at the office. Director of the UC Berkeley Ergonomics Program, Dr. David Rempel, reviewed Phillips’ new ErgoSensor Monitor for its potential to help people develop better posture habits.
The 24-inch LCD monitor uses a sensor that tells users to straighten their back, increase distance from the screen, and even take stretch breaks if it senses slouching or leaning too close to the screen.
In a Wired Magazine interview Dr. Rempel said, “it’s an interesting concept and it certainly provides a potential value for timing and alerting people to take a break. It may have value in terms of posture depending on how it measures neck angle and distance from the screen.”
