Abstract

Neck pain and other spine related injuries are on the rise. One potential cause is bad head posture while using digital devices. We present two systems to monitor and improve head posture for two of the common problematic cases: laptop and mobile phone use. The laptop system uses the front-facing camera. The mobile system the sensor data of a smart glasses prototype. Both systems work reasonable in an initial user study with 10 and 8 participants (72 % detection on the laptop system, 100% for the mobile one). From the discussion, it seems users are especially interested in the smart glasses based monitoring implementation.
