Abstract
tA real-time sitting posture correction system based on highly durable and washable textile pressuresensors was demonstrated. Textile pressure sensors consisted of conducting Ni-Ti alloy fiber with anexcellent fatigue resistance and a pressure-sensitive polyurethane elastomer resulted in reliable capac-itance change by an applied pressure in a range from 10 to 180 kPa with a sensitivity of 2.39 kPa− 1. Thesensing performance was 100% maintained even upon repeated sitting action over 1000 times and harshwashing in detergent-solution. By analyzing the pressure detected at the different positions under thehip, thigh, and back, seven types of sitting postures including upright sitting, sitting with one leg crossed,and sitting with both legs lifted were successfully classified. Finally, real-time display on a monitor of thechanges in sitting posture was simulated in order to allow the users to recognize and correct their bodybalance.
