It is a disease called turtle neck syndrome, which is caused when people start spending way to much time in front of the computer and then problems start to occur.

When Someone sits in front of a computer or watches to much TV or uses their smart phones to much, the throat goes forward like a turtle. The throat is made entirely of flexible material and starts to work by sticking to its neck. In total it can be divided into three parts. If each part is twisted more than a certain angle, this device device predicts turtle neck syndrome and signals the user to change their posture through vibration.
