Memphis-based neurologist Moacir Schnapp, M.D., creator of the iPosture, today announced the launch of his posture improvement device for golfers – the iPosture Golf-Pro.
The small device was created to help golfers improve their posture during day-to-day activities, which, in turn, will help improve their golf game. Worn as a pendant, clipped to clothing or adhered directly to the skin, the iPosture Golf-Pro immediately begins improving a user’s posture by vibrating intermittently when the user slouches and continuing to vibrate until posture is corrected. The iPosture Golf-Pro is designed to be worn for approximately four hours per day for the first two to four weeks in order to ingrain good posture behavior. Once a user learns to correct him- or herself, he or she will continue to do so even when not wearing the device. However, the user should continue to use the device two to three times per week thereafter to maintain posture improvement.
“People rarely think about posture when it comes to their appearance, much less their golf game, but it’s important for them to know that beer’s not the only thing contributing to that belly or that not-always-accurate swing,” Schnapp said. “Bad posture has been proven to reduce the reliability of a golfer’s swing, limit club head speed, compromise power and cause unnecessary strain. The iPosture Golf-Pro is designed to help golfers enhance their game off the course, so they’ll play their best on the course.”
The iPosture and iPosture Golf-Pro monitors were developed to be the smallest, most user-friendly posture improvement devices on the market. Just 1 inch in diameter, the iPosture is designed with intuitive technology that senses when the body slouches, and it alerts the user with a brief vibration to correct it.
The iPosture Golf-Pro is currently available for order at www.iPosture.com for $64.95. All orders will include a copy of Young, Sexy and Healthy: The Ten Best Exercises for Your Posture, a book of posture exercises by Schnapp and his wife, Elma Schnapp, M.D.
