(Couch) Potato Posture Prevention

Updated: Jun 26, 2023

Sitting posture is important when you spend a lot of time behind your desk. To monitor our sitting posture, we wrote a simple webpage/tool that alerts you if your posture is slacking. This tool turned out to be so useful that we decided to share it with all of you.

Why avoiding a potato posture prevention is important

Everybody that spends most of their day in this unnatural position might have a tendency to slack off, resulting in a not-so-good posture anymore.

The image shows two examples of how you can sit in a chair. The first one is the correct way: 20-30 inches from your screen, your arm 90° from your chest and resting on your desk. Knees in  a hook of 90 °as well. The second picture is a cat hanging out on a yellow childrens chair. This is how the author seems to sit at his desk.
At Virtual Sales Lab, we refer to this bad sitting posture as the "couch potato posture"
