With remote work here to stay, chances are you are hunching in your chair, with your shoulders slumped forward—eyes peeled to the screen. Are you aware of your suboptimal posture? Or bad sitting positions that can cause lower back pain? Unless you want to end up looking like the Hunchback of Notre Dame, correct your stance and strengthen your muscles with these five products. 

LOVEHOME Back Cushion

Tired of suffering from back aches due to long hours in front of a computer? Many chairs could use extra lumbar support, and LOVEHOME recognises that. Think adjustable straps and memory foam firm enough to support spinal alignment, yet soft enough to cushion your back. 

Marakym Posture Corrector Brace

If you are a constant sloucher, Marakym has an adjustable lightweight brace that will aid in rectifying your posture. Comfortable and built-to-last, the brand offers a money-back guarantee if you find the product unsatisfactory.  

Upright GO 2 Posture Trainer 

Tired of wearing a brace over your clothes? Try this posture trainer, a compact device (hypoallergenic adhesive) that can be attached to your back to track your progress for up to thirty-five hours. Every time you bend over, it will vibrate to correct your posture, so you can’t get off the hook. To adjust the vibration intensity and timing, download the accompanying app.

Safco Zenergy Ball Chair

Are you all about the #fitspo life? Then swap your everyday chair for this hybrid ball chair. Think an exercise ball, with a dynamic sitting concept that maintains your posture while activating your core. Equipped with quality padding and detachable legs for stability, you may find yourself concentrating more on your tasks, without being sedentary. 

UPLIFT Desk E7 Electric Standing Desk Converter 

I’m sure that you’re aware of the harmful effects of sitting—with some articles claiming that sitting is just as bad as smoking. To nip the problem in the bud, consider a standing desk attachment. The ergonomic design of UPLIFT Desk’s E7 Electric Standing Desk Converter boasts a detachable keyboard tray, a built-in advance memory keypad and a height range of 21 inches. What’s more, the E7 allows you to type comfortably whether you choose to stand or sit.
