Backjoy SitSmart Posture CORE: Designed for the Asians

The way we sit is a much overlooked aspect of our posture. We sit for hours in the office, in transit or even as sedentary as watching tv or a movie. Improper sitting is one of the root cause of many ailments, from back pains that could escalate to more serious conditions. The people from Backjoy carefully designed a sitting device that can optimize our sitting postures. The new SitSmart Posture CORE follows their immensely popular SitSmart Posture that has helped people rediscover their posture. And this new reiteration is geared toward the Asian market.

SitSmart Posture CORE

I had the pleasure of using the original SitSmart Posture on my home work chair for more than a year and can’t say how much it has helped me get used to sitting properly and upright. If you have one, why get the new SitSmart Posture CORE? The new version is specially designed for the Asian bum. The sitting area is slightly broader, more cushiony and has a sculpted front pummel to guide proper seating on the base.

Yoga and Mindful Sitting

To demonstrate how the SitSmart Posture CORE actually works, we had a short Yoga Chair session at Yoga Plus in Makati. Each chair has a sitting device and we followed through the cues. A few core engagement sitting navasanas and twist. It does feel different from the original one as the cupping feel is more prominent. It also engages the core and glutes slightly often leading to sitting tall. I tried it on the floor and boat pose was more challenging due to the rounded bottom but core engagement was still there.

The SitSmart Posture CORE may look simple but it has a well thought out design that instead of forcing one into proper posture, it encourages the body toward its natural spine curve by lightly engaging the necessary muscles (abs and glutes) while seated. Would be a very good investment to ones health having one.
