: Designing smart clothes for dentists

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are the most prevalent problems among dentists. We aim to introduce a device to improve the ergonomic status of musculoskeletal disorders among dentists through clothes that are equipped with simple sensors in waist, neck, and wrist areas, evaluate the dentist’s bending and tension and the duration of a position, then analyze the collected data, and finally warn him about his current position and guide him to a correct position.
