Fix Posture

evaluates a person’s posture at the computer using a webcam. To start, you need to go to the site, allow access to the camera, sit straight and press the Start button. Special technology will remember the correct position of the eyes and shoulders. If the user starts to stoop, lean on his hand or lean sideways, the text on the screen will become blurred. The sharpness will return as soon as the person assumes the starting position.

There are recommendations on the project website for maintaining correct posture: the screen should be at eye level, legs should be on the floor, hips parallel to the ground, shoulders not rounded, back straight. It also states that "strange postures" become the cause of poor posture: sitting at the computer "in Turkish", with legs raised on the table or with the head resting on the arm.
