Tobias Sonne of Carnegie Mellon devised suspenders equipped with stretch sensors that detect differences in resistance depending on the user’s posture. If there is not enough stretch in the suspenders, a buzzer gives haptic feedback, alerting the user to sit up straight.

If suspenders don’t suit your style, it looks like these can easily be worn under clothing. If it’s possible to wear such a device all day, it could be helpful to those who find themselves sitting for much of the day, but in a variety of seats that don’t necessarily address sitting posture in a good way.
