TAXI YOGA / Wearable smart car key for taxi driver

TAXI YOGA
TAXI YOGA

According to surveys, 80% of taxi drivers are suffering from cervical spondylosis, frozen shoulder, bone hyperplasia, sciatica and other diseases. These diseases are majorly caused by their unhealthy lifestyle of maintaining single posture in cars for long time. In response to this, we designed a wearable smart car key for taxi drivers. In addition to the basic functions such as unlocking and locking, taxi drivers can perform certain exercises, such as gentle yoga or skipping ropes, without extra tools after every 4-hour driving. Supported by these modern technology, a more healthy life style could be achieved for those taxi drivers.
