Abstract

The poor posture of office workers who engage in PC work is a problem. Poor posture may cause musculoskeletal disorders. In previous studies on the posture correction system, there are some problems. One of them is that the posture correction system may interfere with the tasks of office workers. There is a posture correction system which does not interfere with the tasks; however, it requires large equipment. In order to solve these problems, we proposed a system that corrects the posture of office workers by rotating the content in the display. This is a method that rotates content in the opposite direction of head movement. We expect that users unconsciously move their head to look at content. We evaluated our porposed method with 2 user studies. User study 1 was conducted to verify whether the angle of the spine changed by rotating the display. It suggested that rotating the dislay induce the head to adjust laterally, not longitudinally. In study 2, we succeeded in moving the direction of the angle of spine of experimental participants to the right by an average of 1 deg by rotating the content right. Thus, we showed the possibility of posture correction without large-scale equipment.
