The user at fist will be notified as to how and when his posture is being corrected and will be given a data of his posture history which will then help the user analyse at what time or at what hour of work his posture usually changes and warns him beforehand. The user will also be notified as to take a break or walk around if he is sitting for long hours together. The user's eye blinking rate per minute will also be calculated and the user would be notified to blink if he is not blinking enough as drying up of cornea leads to eye problems which is also a major issue among office-goers.
