With many office jobs these days requiring consumers to sit or stay stationary for prolonged periods of time, it can be difficult to keep one's posture properly aligned and sit straight. That is where the Turtle Alert comes in, acting as a wearable smart reminder to ensure consumers are retaining a healthy back and neck while they work.

The Turtle Alert is a band that is worn around the neck and able to provide notifications when the wearer's posture is compromised. This is thanks to a set of sensors that are placed throughout that are able to sense tilting in the neck. The device connects to the wearer's computer mousepad and sends a vibration when it notices a shift in posture.
