A SMART VEST THAT PREVENTS KYPHOSIS

Slouching while sitting for too long can put strain on the muscles in back as they become overstretched. We can help prevent many back pain problems by practicing good sitting posture.

This project aims to design a personal mobility

device with an interdisciplinary collaboration in

METU Design Factory.

We asked ourselves the meaning of "mobility". Then, in the brainstorm sessions,

we decided to redefine the word as "Being capable of mobilize in a healthy way"

With this definition, We started to think "the healthier way to move". We made interviews with people who suffer from back pain, physiotherapists and designers in related field.

POSTURAL KYPHOSIS

This form of kyphosis is attributed to poor posture and slouching. It occurs

in both young and older patients, is more prominent in females than in males, and rarely causes pain.

Keeping with a proper posture position and exercises to strengthen

abdominal and back muscles, can help correct kyphosis from poor posture and maintain a more normal

alignment.*
