Habitus Posture is a digital health company founded in 2016 to solve the global unmet need of injury and illness caused by prolonged sitting and poor posture in seated employees. A gap in the market was identified for a device that would help patients to develop better posture and encourage active movement breaks throughout the day. Habitus Posture is a revolutionary discreet wearable sensor paired with a mobile app that alerts users to adjust their posture and motivate them to get up and move around.
The app collects valuable data, constantly uploading to the cloud, delivering real time data points for immediate prevention of illness throughout the day. Astronauts move into a flexed posture in space and like humans sitting at desks can stay in this harmful position for long periods of time, leading to weakened spinal extensor musculature and severe back pain.
