This paper is intended to present a smart posture recognition and correction system. In specific, Sitting in wrong posture for persistent period of time results in many health problems such as back pain, soreness, poor circulation, cervical pains and also decrease in eyesight in the long run. The proposed model makes use of real time skeletal points extraction. This system is based on computer vision and machine learning algorithms.
