“Give your child a strong and good posture for life. Today we see how many children and young people get stuck in front of various digital devices and become sedentary for too long, and also in bad positions. Make sure your child takes many breaks and is reminded to stretch his muscles and regain his posture after a game session “
Gabriella Follin, physiotherapist

Reminding posture function based on biofeedback and the combination of elasticity and firmness. Developed by Swedish Posture for optimal posture correction by having muscles strengthening instead of relieving them. The body is guided to a natural posture.
Whys is good posture important for children?
A growing child needs to have a habit of upright posture to strengthen the muscles that hold the natural S-curvature of the spine. Hours over books, iPads or screens risk keeping the child or young person in a curved position with the spine in a C-curve, the abdominal muscles relaxed and the shoulders, neck and head tilted forward. This puts a great strain on the lumbar spine, neck and shoulders. The children’s neck muscles are not fully developed and the load of a 10-12 kg head that is intended to be balanced directly on the spine at a forward hanging angle gives pain and poor posture. Try to shorten the time in front of screens and fill it with many breaks for movement. They should rather lie on their stomachs over iPads instead of sitting in a bad position. Make sure that you teach your child what good posture is and how the body should be in a standing, walking and sitting position.
