How many times have you finished a long day of work with grueling back-pain?
Well, you’re not alone.
80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives, and the number one reason for that is poor posture, according to the American Chiropractic Association. The truth is, our bodies were not designed to sit all day and slouch over our computers and smart-phones. In a sedentary instant, slouching became an accepted epidemic.
But it shouldn’t be accepted.
We shouldn’t have to pick between sitting, and sitting right. We can combine the two.
UPRIGHT is a wearable that trains you to sit and stand upright. It attaches to your lower back and gently vibrates every time you slouch. UPRIGHT however, is not a ‘classic’ wearable, but actually a ‘trainable.’ A trainable is a wearable you only have to wear for a short period of time during the day, and it trains you in real time to make a behavioral change. UPRIGHT is a posture trainer. You only have to wear it for 15mins to an hour a day and it trains you to quit slouching.
Personalized training programs and the UPRIGHT app
Because of that, UPRIGHT comes with a companion app and personalized training programs to help users stick to their training session and achieve their daily goals. The app was specifically designed to give users the full ‘upright experience,’ through an interactive user interface, video tutorial and a full support system. All you have to do is wear UPRIGHT for your daily goal and by the end of your program you will be able to maintain an upright posture completely naturally and on your own.
What’s the secret?
Consistent accurate real-time feedback.
Skinner’s theory of operant conditioning explain how our bodies can learn desired behaviors on a subconscious level by avoiding negative reinforcement. In UPRIGHT’s case, each vibration trains the body to adopt a naturally upright posture.
What people have to say so far…
“When I saw the UPRIGHT device, I said I must try it. So I tried it, and after a while, I just was standing straight, and I didn’t need to carry the device on my back all the time… I had a great experience with this device.” — Sam, Beta Tester
“After a few days of getting used to it, you easily see the benefits of having this little device remind you every time you’re slouching, and then you realize how often you’re slouching and that it’s doing to your back.” — Adi, Beta Tester
“It’s been a lot of fun to experience how my posture has been improving, when I sit, when I stand, when I walk… It’s totally worth it and I would recommend it to all my friends. Using the device is absolutely phenomenal.” — Roy, Beta tester
“It helped me be more aware of my posture, and how I stand… If you have back pain and you’re uncomfortable with the way you stand, I highly recommend it.” — Haim, Beta tester
If that doesn’t make you sit up straight, i’m not sure what will. But the point is, you really should. Slouching is killing us, and now theres a simple way to solve it.
Start training and get upright.
