Posture-monitoring Vest

Research in garment-integrated body sensing conducted at University College Dublin (Dunne) resulted in a posture-monitoring vest for long-term computer use. This vest used a single optical bend sensor embedded in the vest to monitor seated posture, and alerted the user to sustained poor posture through a system tray icon on the computer's desktop.
