Especially in today’s sitting, typing and texting society, grandmother was right - you need to straighten up. To promote the importance of posture, BodyZone.com is proud to announce the free PostureZone app is now available in the App Store.
-Your Posture Will Betray You-
PostureZone is a tool for people to benchmark and track posture improvements, or decline, a common consequence of excessive sitting, injuries and aging. In addition, parents concerned about their child’s poor posture habits or scoliosis can monitor changes, while athletes can work towards perfecting stance and form.
"Posture is really important for living healthier longer. Most people are completely unaware of how much their body is folding forward even when they think they’re standing straight. The negative effects of our sitting society, slumped over keyboards and phones, is enormous. The PostureZone app can help improve health and even prevent falls by making people aware of their posture as they age, as well as showing tangible changes with efforts to strengthen posture. We teach that it all begins with an assessment, now there's a free tool to make it easy.” says Dr. Steven Weiniger, posture expert and delegate to the White House Conference on Aging.
