Abstract: The sitting position has become one of the most common postures in developed countries. However, assuming a poor sitting posture leads to several health problems, namely back, shoulder and neck pain. In a previous work, an intelligent chair was developed and was shown to classify and correct the seating position. This work describes improvements on this intelligent chair prototype culminating with the development of a new prototype. The improvements of this new prototype are presented, resulting in new studies for posture identification. Pressure maps for 12 sitting postures were gathered in order to automatically detect user’s posture through a neural network algorithm, obtaining an overall posture classification of around 81%.
