Potsu posture correction Stool

Potsu is a posture correction stool. Poor posture and the associated lower back pain is a major problem in the modern world. In fact about 80% if the general population will experience lower back pain at some point in their lifetime. Much of this discomfort can be attributed to the way which we sit at our desks and in front of computers.

Over the four months I worked on this project I learned a lot about posture, back pain and corrective therapies. Through a series of prototypes and testing I decided a sitting device would make the most sense to help address people who experience chronic pain due to poor sitting habits. By physically tipping the pelvis and placing the user’s legs and spine into proper sitting alignment Potsu helps alleviate and correct the negative aspects of improper sitting over a long period of time.
