Abstract

Both Repetitive Stress Injuries and laptop use have increased. The poor ergonomic design of laptops has the potential to create or exacerbate existing RSI. We propose a persuasive Attentive User Interface which provides feedback in order to improve user neck posture. This system measures the angle of the user.s neck and determines the quality of his/her neck posture. We then provide exercises to strengthen the neck and improve the user.s posture. We performed a study which showed an increase in neck comfort among our system.s users. The study demonstrated the potential of our system, which should be further tested.
