What Is SPAS

The Sitting-Posture Advisory Sensor (SPAS) is a sensor that locates the position of the user’s head using gyroscope and accelerometer technology. Its compact and light-weight size, along with its versatility, can be used to create a tool that the changing world desperately needs.

The Problem

Poor posture can put a lot of pressure on your neck, spine, and back which can lead to muscle weakness, headaches, and pain that radiates throughout the body. Continuous damage to the spine as a result of poor posture can lead to more long-term problems such as early-onset arthritis and even premature degeneration of the spine.

This problem is perpetuated by the increased usage of cell phones, which leads to an accelerated increase in the number of people who are susceptible to poor posture and text-neck.

A hunched back can put up to 60 kg (27 lbs) of weight on your neck and spine.
Across Europe, 82% of the population owns a cell phone.
Globally, over 5 billion people own cell phones.

SPAS: The Solution to the Poor-Posture Problem

 SPAS is the perfect solution to the growing problem of text-neck. It can be implemented in a wide array of innovative technological applications. It can serve a wide range of potential customers such as office workers, students, gym-goers, people with scoliosis, and gamers.

What SPAS Can Do for Users

 By using SPAS within your innovative device, you can ensure that your customers have reminders to correct their posture whenever necessary. Good posture allows you to use your muscles and ligaments more efficiently, leading to lower fatigue and greater function as you age. Having a straight back can align your organs to make regular functions (such as digestion) more effective and can lead to an overall increase in your quality of life and life-expectancy.
