Designing of smart chair for monitoring of sitting posture using convolutional neural networks

Designing of smart chair for monitoring of sitting posture using convolutional neural networks Sitting in a chair is a typical act of modern people.

Abstract

Sitting in a chair is a typical act of modern people. Prolonged sitting and sitting with improper postures can lead to musculoskeletal disorders.

The purpose of this paper is to develop a system for classifying children’s sitting postures for the formation of correct postural habits.Design/methodology/approachFor the data analysis, a pressure sensor of film type was installed on the seat of the chair, and image data of the postu.re were collected. A total of 26 children participated in the experiment and collected image data for a total of seven postures.
