About

Soon, your shirt will correct your posture

Smart Rehabilitation Garment is an article of therapeutic clothing composed of integrated smart textiles and wearable electronics. Working in synch with a dedicated smart phone application, the garment detects movements or positions that are in excess of the set range. The user receives feedback from a vibration motor and the phone’s visual and audio feedback in order to make necessary adjustments to prevent spinal pain and improve posture.
