SAN FRANCISCO, August 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Posture Keeper, a new device designed to prevent slouching
"We're excited to reach our campaign goal so early in our campaign, but it's our backers who suffer with neck and back pain who are going to be really excited with the results they see after using this product," said Posture Keeper founder Shirley Tan.
Developed for quick, 30-second set up in any office chair, Posture Keeper is designed so it gently reminds users to sit upright, while retraining their 'muscle memory' to improve posture over the long-term – eliminating chronic neck, shoulder and back pain.
Studies show that one in three office workers suffer from chronic back or neck pain, as a result of spending hours working at a computer. Over a prolonged time, this can cause significant and ongoing health issues.
Tan, who personally fought chronic neck and back pain for years, says she tested every medication and device with little to no improvement – with doctors even suggesting she quit her job to get relief.
"The last thing I wanted to do was leave the job I loved, but he informed me that years of being hunched over, staring into the computer had taken its toll," she said. "I was suffering from radiating pain on both arms, stiff neck and tight shoulders."
After testing many products to get relief with no results, Tan used her skills as an entrepreneur to develop The Posture Keeper to proactively solve back pain over the long-term.
"By gently reminding you to sit upright at your desks, while using a lumbar system to help retrain your 'muscle memory,' it not only helps your posture while you sit and when you stand, too," she said. "It addresses the root cause of chronic pain with a simple, transportable and easy-to-use device that's drug free."
The Posture Keeper uses lightweight straps and lumbar support to cradle and comfort the lower back. Rather than leaning forward and straining the neck, shoulders and back at a desk, The Posture Keeper reminds users sit back and erect.
