The measures to curb the spread of the corona virus mean for many of us that we have been working in the home office for several months. This has many advantages such as more calm, more flexibility and in many cases even higher productivity (this was also the result of a study by the Australian job placement portal Airtasker).

Posture correction tool ensures better posture
Shoulder strap for posture correction from Kuyang – 10.99 euros at Amazon *
That is why we were looking for ways and means to help you work in the home office without an ergonomic chair and desk. We came across an inexpensive posture correction tool * that promises to stabilize the back. This is said to alleviate pain and discomfort resulting from poor posture.
We are talking about a shoulder strap that you simply pull under your clothes (and so you will not notice it in zoom meetings and Microsoft team meetings). It consists of a latex-free and sweat-absorbing mesh material, which is extremely comfortable to wear and does not cause skin irritation. The belt is suitable for women and men with different body shapes. This allows the posture correction tool * to be adjusted for breast circumferences from 70 to 130 centimeters.

It is also said to reduce pain in the upper and lower back as well as the neck and collarbone. The better posture when wearing it also strengthens the back muscles and thus provides more flexibility.
We haven’t tested the belt ourselves yet, but the reviews on Amazon * sound promising. More than 200 customers have already given it five stars. A convinced buyer writes: “After only a few days of use, I can say that the investment was worth it: the back stabilizer noticeably corrects my posture when sitting, but also when standing. You pull the part like a backpack and pull the straps tight. So you automatically adopt an upright posture. I recommend wearing the bracket trainer for about 20 to 30 minutes a day at the beginning. Due to the compulsorily straight posture, neglected muscles are used (when crouched sitting) that only want to be trained a little“(Mike Blackwood on Amazon **).
