Biofeedback Posture Trainer

Having a good posture (regardless of whether you are a guy or a gal) is always a plus point, especially when you are “on the market” so to speak and are looking for a life partner. After all, there is always that air of authority that one emanates whenever you sit up or stand with the proper posture for sure. For those of us who due to a lack of self discipline and “could not be bothered” attitude, perhaps a gizmo like the $89.95 Biofeedback Posture Trainer might come in handy in the long run.

The Biofeedback Posture Trainer is a biofeedback device whose sole intention is to train users to develop good posture as it will beep or vibrate whenever it detects anyone slouching. Specially designed by an occupational therapist, this is a lightweight trainer that can be worn like a backpack over clothing, where it will teach the right spinal alignment which would then help prevent back pain and promote good breathing and joint health. Sporting soft, adjustable shoulder straps and a belt that are connected to a central strap which holds the biofeedback monitor over the spine, each time you slouch, the straps will tug on the monitor, triggering a buzzer or vibration. As to whether you prefer to be alerted by a buzzer or a vibration, that really boils down to the settings of your choice. Silencing the alarm is a snap – all you need to do is straighten that back up, and you’re good to go. It is said that wearing the Biofeedback Posture Trainer for three weeks for two 20-minute sessions a day would help you develop the kind of muscle memory required so that you employ good posture all the time.
