Posture detection and breathing exercises are uniquely suited to a wearable circuit. Despite the use of activity trackers such as the FitBit and smart watches, they are not able to measure and inform a wearer to correct their posture, or combine this information with other activities to improve their well-being.

The goal was to develop and implement a circuit for a wearable device. This circuit that can be sewn on to clothing such as undershirts to monitor one’s posture and physical activity, focusing on back posture, deep breathing and simple activity tracking.
