Philips monitor sports ErgoSensor, cannot bear you slouching


It is said that one needs to have a decent posture whether you are walking or sitting down – I know that slouching feels a whole lot more comfortable, but somehow or rather, our bodies were created and designed in such a way that you not only look good sitting up with great posture, it is also good for your body as well. Philips knows this, and with so many of us being tethered to our computers for hours on end each day, it is interesting to note that they have taken the effort to make sure we do not slouch in front of our computer monitor, but rather, sit up like a 5-star general.

This is made possible thanks to their latest monitor that is known as the ErgoSensor, where a sensor is placed where the webcam is located, and the ErgoSensor will ensure it keeps its eye on you whenever you work. Should it detect you starting to slouch, it will alert you, delivering advice on how you are able to obtain more optimal viewing as well as a better ergonomic position.

Not only that, this new monitor takes on the green role as it is capable of saving up to 80% energy consumption should you not be in front of the seat, as the monitor will power off by itself. There is also a user-friendly interface attached to the ErgoSensor, letting you pick from the right mode to suit the correct situation, including Office, Photo, Movie, Game, and Economy among others. Depending on the selection, SmartImage will dynamically optimize the contrast, colour saturation and sharpness of images and videos for ultimate display performance.

There is also an able cable management system to make sure cable clutter remains at a minimum, ensuring your workplace stays neat and professional. After all, a neat workspace is always the ideal point for great ideas to start – too much clutter reflects the inner noise, and that is where all creative juices get stifled. To continue along the green line, this Philips monitor housing will be free from brominated flame retardant and polyvinyl chloride (PVC-BFR free).

We’ve actually invented and been selling something similar for the last few years, with fantastic feedback from people who want to improve their posture or recover from back pain. The difference is Postureminder is simply software, so you don’t need to buy a new monitor – just use it with any low cost webcam. It also includes other tools for healthy working, and it’s much, much cheaper than the ErgoSensor. There’s also a free 30-day trial on our website so you can try it for yourself without risk.
