The Posture Feedback System

  • Lifting. As you lift a load, the Posture Feedback System is designed to remind you, by applying pressure against your back, if you move into an improper position. This reminds the user to change their position to reflect the NIOSH and OSHA lifting guidelines. We recommend daily use of the FLx to maintain good posture throughout the workday, as energy and job intensity changes throughout the day.
