UPRIGHT – the gentle posture coach

UPRIGHT in use

Chances are while you were growing up, someone, probably your parent, reminded you on a fairly regular basis to sit and/or stand up straight, you don’t want to ruin your back slouching all the time! Now that you’re on your own, there’s no one to keep you from sitting hunched over your laptop. Meet UPRIGHT, the wearable that cares about your posture as much as your mom did.

UPRIGHT attaches to your lower back and sends a little vibration every time it senses that you’ve started to slouch. The goal is that you will eventually get used to sitting or standing correctly on your own without the device.

UPRIGHT package

It attaches with stickers that are medical tape grade and safe for all skin types. It’s not meant to be worn all day, just for 15 minutes to an hour at a time. The more you use it, the better you’ll be at catching yourself. There is also an app that tracks your training progress but you don’t need to use it in order to use UPRIGHT. If you want to improve your posture, it’s much better than a stack of books on your head. UPRIGHT is $129.95 and ships starting in November.
