COACH / earphones


COACH is gait and posture correction earphones using the gyroscope sensor and tilt sensor that recognize the rotational speed, tilt and condition of balance. Modern people often suffer due to posture imbalance caused by long time work and the reduce of physical activity. In order to solve the aforementioned pain of people, I designed “COACH" in the form of earphone that is always present with them. If the user is imbalanced state for a long time, COACH gives the vibration to change the position that they own. COACH is not compulsory correct posture, it helps the user to recognize themselves about voluntary correction of posture.
