Abstract— In this paper a novel portable posture monitoring and feedback system is proposed. System is designed to be unobtrusively used during daily activities and provide alternative solution to traditional bracing used in treatment of scoliosis. System consists of wearable sensor network for posture data acquisition, wireless data transmission and conventional smartphone for data processing, visualization and vibrating feedback generation. Special data acquisition board is designed for data sampling from sensor network and wireless transmission to smartphone. A custom made Android application is used for real time data processing, current posture model visualization, data logging and instantaneous feedback. System was tested for posture monitoring and feedback generation on multiple test subjects. Tests demonstrated systems effectiveness on improving posture related behavior and ability to help subject to hold specific reference posture performing similar task as traditional bracing.

Index Terms— biofeedback, portable computing, posture monitoring, wearable technology.
