Behavioral posture means ever-changing biomechanical state of our natural behavior in our daily life, such as sleeping, standing, sitting, walking, running and so on.
These activities pose various risks if they were conducted in the wrong way. For instance, people often feel a sitting posture effortless compared to a standing posture because a sitting posture requires much less muscle activities - in turn, brain activities. As a result, we tend to feel comfortable with a bad posture.
 
However, for instance, our inter vertebral disks bear much heavier burden in a sitting posture compared to a standing posture. Without supports from muscle activities that are controlled by brain activities, we unknowingly overtask our supportive tissues. This may cause various disorders.
 
To prevent such a situation, we must learn appropriate use of body (behavioral posture) including not only standing, sitting, walking postures but also use of hands, arms and feet. These appropriate use of body must be applied to not only activities of daily life in general public but also various athletes.
The goal of Behavioral Posture Research Society (BPRS) is to improve nation’s health and sportsdom by researching and introducing appropriate behavioral posture.

According to a clinical study published in British Medical Journal (BMJ), people with low walking speed had about a threefold increased risk of cardiovascular death compared with people who walked faster (Dumurgier et al. 2009). More recently, it was reported in Journal of American Medical Society (JAMA) that gait speed is associated with survival in older adults (Studenski et al. 2011). These studies suggest that brisk walking behavior may contribute to a reduction of cardiovascular disease that may result in an extension of our duration of life.
 
However, human is the first living being that learned erect bipedalism on the earth, in other words, we are inexperienced in bipedal walking.
People often suffer from low back pain, pain in knee, hip pain, sciatic pain and more because of inappropriate body use that puts load on their body structure. In fact, we have never been taught “appropriate walking” from our family or school.
 
The purpose of Behavioral Posture Research Society (BPRS) is to throughly research basic human behavior such as sitting, standing and walking, and to suggest appropriate behavior that do not place a burden on our body structure (bone, joint etc). We believe that introduction of appropriate behavioral posture may result in a prevention of disease, that would contribute to a welfare society that people live a longer and healthy life.
