Back pain is the No. 1 cause of disability and accounts for more than 264 million lost work days per year.

Now researchers at Vanderbilt University have developed clothing to prevent back pain. 

In Healthy Living we introduce you to smart underwear.

The team says they plan on having this version of the smart underwear available in the market within the next year.

They have also been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to create an upgraded version of the suit, where sensors would allow the smart clothing to predict when help is needed without engaging the device by tapping.
