Millions of people are suffering from back pains in the United States and all around the world. The most common reason behind this is poor posture of the back. This paper is motivated by the need of a tool to remind students and heavy computer users to correct their poor postures automatically to prevent back pains. We aim to develop a posture correction system with a biofeedback mechanism. This paper focuses on the construction, working and applications of a posture corrector.
