Good Posture in 30 Days
Upright Technologies helps develop posture awareness with electronic sensors
An innovative, Israel-based company has taken on the “screen slouching epidemic.” A significant portion of the world’s population uses screens on a daily basis. Back pain, often associated with screen time, is the single leading cause of disability, preventing many people from engaging in work as well as other everyday activities. Maintaining good posture contributes to overall wellness, including better breathing, sleeping, productivity, and self-confidence.
Healthy posture is more critical than ever. While fitness and healthy eating are promoted with fitness trackers, gym memberships and a slew of diet programs, until now there was no product to deal with posture in real time. Unlike passive solutions such as straps or spinal manipulation, this device empowers the user to change their habits and strengthen their core.
The Upright Go complements all other fitness and well-being activities - from Pilates and exercise to better sleep and stress management. By motivating users to change their position, the device can improve breathing, confidence and prevent aches and pains.
The premium patented technology, design and unique location directly on the upper back allows the movement and posture to be monitored in real time to provide accurate and immediate feedback. The Upright Go 2™ has two modes: training and tracking. In training mode, the device gently vibrates whenever the user slouches. With tracking mode, the device keeps accurate stats on posture throughout the day using enhanced, multi-sensor technology. The device comes with a free mobile app (iOS and Android) that generates a personalized training plan to improve posture awareness and core strength. The app also lets users keep track of their progress, view their posture stats over time, as well as other wellness tips and guidance.
