Are young people today becoming a Generation of hunchbacks? Some people say so.
Studies are showing that many young people are in danger of getting terrible posture and becoming hunchback. This is due to constant looking down on gadgets (i.e. smartphones, tablets, video games, etc.).
Furthermore, with today’s sedentary lifestyle, children are spending longer hours sitting at desks doing schoolwork, working on computers, and carrying heavy school bags. These factors are creating a generation of hunchbacks (medically known as ‘kyphosis’). This leads to trapped nerves. In addition trapped nerves can cause severe pain and other issues such as, breathing problems, headaches, depression, neck problems, and arthritis. These symptoms can continue well into adulthood. Also, children looking down at media devices has been found in studies to affect their mood.
We have a number of solutions that are specially designed to prepare for this future health implosion.
- The Foundation – portable posture correction device designed to exercise core muscles while sitting
- Reboot – Scientists say it is actually non-exercise movement, the mere change in posture every 15 minutes or so, is a major influence in avoiding these chronic problems. So, the solution is extremely simple: REBOOT! We, at The Spinery, invented a fun reminder that makes you do just that. Can be used at the office, at home or even at school.
