We present the Working Posture Controller (WPC), a novel technology to help workers preventing posture-related Musculo-skeletal disorders. The innovation lies in the fact that the system does not require tedious work place design or process planning, since it automatises these steps. We discuss this technology from different views including a first technical evaluation, discussions concerning use cases, safety and economic and legal challenges when integrating such a technology into the production line.
