Frequently Asked Questions
Posture Leader is a easy-to-use wearable posture correcting device specifically designed for dentists, it alarms the user for her/his bad postures and improve posture awareness. It aims to leverage the Musculoskeletal Disorders among dentists who are more prone to these problems. Our product will not only educate the dentists about standard postures while practicing, but will also suggest specific preventive and corrective exercises to relieve the tensions from their muscles. Posture-Leader has two important parts, the wearable device and the smart mobile application.
Posture-Leader is a based-on-science device, we developed its algorithm specifically for dentists to prevent their common musculoskeletal disorders by informing them about their harmful frequent postures and give them corrective exercises based on their potentially harmful postures and suggesting healthier functionally-equivalent postures.
Posture-Leader features state of the art design to have both ease of use and precision of data collection, it utilizes two high precision accelerometer-inclination sensors to measure the angle of back and neck precisely, we trained our system based on real behaviors and postures of dentists with the aid of the rich dentist community around us.
The mobile app is easy to use and features real time display of posture changes, when deviating from the correct posture for specific dental practices, a silent vibration and in app alarm reminder will be issued until correction is made by the user. It will also log user’s posture throughout the day and suggest corrective daily exercises for the neck and back based on user’s recent postures.
The biggest difference between Posture-Leaders and other devices is that our product does sense your neck’s inclination in addition to your back, as you know cervical spondylosis is very common disorder in dentistry community due to their bad postures in working time.
Posture-Leader does not overtake your muscles functionality too, for example, in a corset or compression shirt, you will get the feeling of “collapsing” once you take the product off. The idea behind that kind of posture correcting wearable devices is to hold you in a fixed position, making it very difficult for you to move. A medical specialist may recommend these types of product in very unique cases, but they would generally never recommend it if you are looking to achieve a better posture and reduce shoulder and back pain related to poor posture. Posture-Leader device works differently from corsets by allowing you to retain free movement. The device is rather making you aware of your posture, see it as a strict teacher constantly telling you when your posture is poor. If you, for instance, are slouching you will feel the feedback from the device that will encourage you to align your posture and it will come naturally to you to do so. When you start aligning your posture, you will activate the muscles yourself. When you continuously activate your muscles, the muscles also build up muscle memory, so the effects will also be seen, even when you are not wearing the device.
When wearing the device, and practicing you are constantly being subtlety reminded to align your posture, this leads to building up “muscle memory”, so you begin to align your posture and you will see its effects in the long run, as your body needs time to learn the ability to hold the proper body posture, and by using the device’s mobile app, you will have access to tailored exercises specifically for you regarding your poor posture.
As medical specialists, we believe that the sole solution to these kinds of problems is prevention and the key to prevention is awareness of people. This awareness has two aspects, the first is prevention of adopting bad postures and the second is performing muscle-specific strengthening and corrective exercises. Our product, by constantly reminding you of your posture will prevent you from adopting bad habits and by its mobile app and the exercises that it offers will help you strengthen your muscles.
