Digital gadgets like desktop computers, laptops, and mobile phones have become an essential part of modern life. Due to the availability and ease of use of high-tech digital gadgets, everybody spends a lot of time on computers which can cause serious stress on the human body. Today most jobs involve staring at computer screens for hours. The computer-specific jobs require people to continuously interact with the computer screen for at least 5 hours a day on average. Some offices take care of computer ergonomics (the science of designing a job, workspace, or equipment to fit the worker) but most employers and employees are unaware of this. The usage of these gadgets without proper body orientation can lead to eye, backbone, neck, and head stress. Long-term use of these gadgets can cause side effects such as musculoskeletal problems, obesity, vision problems, and stress disorders as well. This can be avoided by sitting in a correct posture and taking exercises of the eyes and back at regular intervals. The objective of this study is to monitor the user’s posture, eye, and neck stress. The user will be suggested exercises and tips practice at regular intervals. The proposed software will maintain a record of the user’s posture statistics that will be shown in the form of graphs. The results of application monitoring, blink rate, and posture statistics indicate that there is a considerable improvement and accuracy in the proposed model which also helps in improving users’ physical health and reducing mental stress.
