  • Professions requiring prolonged sitting – Banking, Telephone operators, students, authors, doctors, pharmacist, architect, Civil Servants – secretaries, lawyer, tailor, designer etc.)

  • Handling of multiple objects at a time – keyboard, mouse, phone, mobile phone, writing pad, pen etc.

  • Long driving

  • Long meetings

Body postures while using phone and computer

Body postures while using phone and computer

Holding the phone between the ear and the shoulder places a lot of stress on the joints and muscles

Repercussions of incorrect body postures

Repercussions of incorrect body postures

  • Back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Arm and wrists pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Eye strain

  • Disorders of soft tissue (muscle knots, muscle tension and contractions, circulatory disorders, overuse disorders)

  • And list goes on……

Back pain

Back Pain

  • Lack of support from your chair

  • Improper fit of the chair, or the improper type of chair for computer use

  • Sitting slumped

  • Feet not touching the ground

  • Prolonged sitting, without a break

  • Over reaching for the keyboard or mouse

Neck pain

Neck Pain

  • Viewing a monitor placed too low or viewing a document on the desk

  • Looking up at a monitor that is placed too high

  • Looking over to one side to view a monitor or copy from a document

  • Jutting the chin forward to view a screen or copy from a document.

Ergonomics suggestions 1 2

Ergonomics suggestions – 1/2

  • Correct posture and positioning of the body

  • Position of keyboard and mouse

  • Correct position of the chair

  • Correct position of the computer screen

  • Correct usage of mouse and keyboard

Ergonomics suggestions 2 2

Ergonomics suggestions – 2/2

As suggested by an ergonomics expert

Giriraj Goyal, Samsung Electronics


Need for ban 1 2

Need for BAN – 1/2

Present Solutions:

  • Computer users try to follow the instructions of an ergonomics expert.

  • Ergonomics Software to help users to take regular breaks, get reminded of correct posture and do regular stretches.

Giriraj Goyal, Samsung Electronics


Need for ban 2 2

Need for BAN – 2/2

Problems with present solutions:

  • It is easy to adjust the height of the chair, height of the screen and re-arrange the desk. But, It is difficult to follow the instructions aimed at your body.

  • Ergonomics software are not intelligent enough, they are not aware of state of user and state of work environment. It can annoy user persistently with pop-up messages.

Giriraj Goyal, Samsung Electronics


Ban a viable solution

BAN A VIABLE SOLUTION

The solution using BAN could consists of

  • The network component

    • A wearable costume with wireless sensors placed at appropriate positions, sensors in chair, desk, and a gateway, form a body area network.

  • Verification component

    • This entity takes information from BAN network to check the correct posture of a body by analyzing the collected data.

  • Message delivery component

    • This entity notifies a user with a simple text or audio message or AV message. It could just be a warning message for wrong body posture or with a possible correction.

Requirements

Requirements

  • Location awareness techniques

  • Low data rate

  • Ideally no false alarm and no positive miss
