We have become a generation of sitters. Gone are the days where we run and play and walk. We get up in the morning, get ready for work, go sit in our car and drive to work, then sit for eight hours at our desk, and after we’ve driven home (with more sitting!), we sit and eat dinner. And then we go to bed. Rinse and repeat.
The Darma Seat Cushion wants to break you out of this mold by helping you to sit smarter. Darma gives you positive feedback by monitoring your heartbeat, posture, respiration, and stress levels. While we’re so used to other technology monitoring our sleeping, exercising, and eating, we don’t yet have one to monitor our sitting. It’s the new cushion for the new era. It will alert you when you’re slouching and when it’s time for you to take a break. Because it’s been calibrated to your specific needs, it can tell when you’re stressed and it will remind you to relax. It’s like your mother, but not a pain in your rear.
