Questions Asked and Answered about UPRIGHT Posture Wearables

Share
Let’s back up and get down to some important questions on posture (pun intended). Your mom has been nagging you for years to sit upright, stand upright, walk upright and you’ve never even known what being upright looks like or listened since nagging is the worst, but now your back hurts and you’re starting to think you should have listened.

It’s actually the most comfortable and natural position for you to be in. But (you must be wondering) if it’s so comfortable and natural, why do you need an UPRIGHT posture device?

In this technological age, we’ve grown used to slouching in front of our laptops and iPhones that slouching has become the new normal. So much so that it can feel weird and strained to be upright. We continue to have poor posture even though we know it’s the cause of our lower back pain, our exhaustion, and even our insecurities.

 Changing bad habits are hard. In fact, in general, it takes a month or even more to teach yourself to change bad habits and adopt new ones.

Upright posture devices are built to help you build long term proper posture habits.

Here are some answers to a few frequently asked questions about our posture trainers:

How do the UPRIGHT devices work?

Our posture trainers are placed directly onto your back (either lower or upper depending on the device) with an adhesives. Once you calibrate your proper posture, the device will vibrate whenever it senses that you are no longer sitting, standing, or walking upright. The gentle vibration serves to remind you to be upright.

How does it help build long term good habits?

The UPRIGHT GO come with a customized and personal training plan in the mobile app. The training plan is based on your age, weight, and back pain. Each day the amount of time you train your posture builds so that proper posture becomes instinctive.

How do they stick onto my back?

The UPRIGHT GO comes with 5 reusable hypoallergenic adhesives that last up to 10 days.

Is the UPRIGHT device noticeable?

UPRIGHT devices are to be worn directly on the spine, so they are discreet. No one has to know your training to be posture perfect. It’s just between you and your upright.

      Hi,

      In order to use the UPRIGHT GO device, you do not need to use the associated UPRIGHT GO.

      You can use the device in Stand Alone mode, which allows you to operate the basic functions using the power button.

      You can read more about it in our Help Center article here

      I have the newer model with the necklace. It came in October. Right after it came, I was a passenger in a very bad car accident, fracturing several vertebrae and I had to wear a back brace for five months.
      I am now trying to go without the brace full time, but I see my posture is terrible. My physical therapist suggested I try this .
      I can’t get the app to work. It says I am already registered, but my phone-iphone11pro, doesn’t think so. When I click on the forgotten password ithe app says it will contact me via email, but it never does. My email is [email protected].

          The UPRIGHT GO devices have been tested and received all necessary approvals in the US and Europe regarding communications and electronics, and is safe to use.

          The UPRIGHT GO does have Bluetooth radiation- We use 1mW for our Bluetooth, which is much lower than a cellphone and considered safe.

          In any case, if you are concerned, which is totally understandable, we have an ‘airplane mode’ which you can switch on to avoid any kind of radiation.

          Additionally, if you have any doubts about using the UPRIGHT GO while pregnant, we do recommend that you consult a doctor.

      Hi Karen,

      The UPRIGHT GO is a great posture trainer that has helped over 200,000 customers improve their posture.

      The UPRIGHT GO 2 was designed and built according to the feedback we got from our customers regarding the UPRIGHT GO. On top of including all the great features of the UPRIGHT GO, the UPRIGHT GO 2’s adhesive surface was increased by 40% to improve the grip. The battery life is 3 times longer and the UPRIGHT GO 2 itself is 50% smaller than the UPRIGHT GO.

      Moreover, the UPRIGHT GO 2 has an additional sensor making detection of your posture even more accurate, it has a modern USB-C charging port, and it comes with a slick hard case.

      Overall the UPRIGHT GO is awesome. The UPRIGHT GO 2 is even better. 😊

      Hi Don,

      Yes, that is correct. The device is not waterproof, so you will need to take off when you shower, go swimming, etc.

      In regards to the adhesives, with proper use and care, each strip can be used up to 10 times.

      Hi,
      The UPRIGHT GO and UPRIGHT GO 2 devices train you to be more upright throughout the day. UPRIGHT GO is great if you find that you slouch from your upper back and if you plan to using it while standing, sitting at a desk or walking.

      It’s not a medical device, and if sitting upright causes you pain it might not be for you. If you suffer from a medical condition and are concerned, consult a medical professional before training with the UPRIGHT GO.

      Hi Beth,

      The UPRIGHT GO reminds you to sit upright with a gentle vibration and complies with all the applicable standards for this device:
      FCC part 15C, FCC part 15B, and for CE (it complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety, and environmental protection legislation)

      The device has Bluetooth radiation. We use 1mW for our Bluetooth, which is much lower than a cellphone. The magnets on the necklace are regular magnets, not electro-magnets, and as such I recommend checking with your doctor or the manufacturer of your Implanted Cardio Defibrillator with your question. as they should have more information about using a gadget with magnets.

      It’s important to keep in mind that the UPRIGHT GO devices are a training device, and not a medical one, and use sophisticated sensors in order to detect your slouching and indicate that in real-time to remind you to straighten up.

      We have had many customers with a variety of back conditions who reported great progress using the UPRIGHT GO. We do offer a 30-day return money-back guarantee, so you can simply try it out and return it if you feel like it’s not for you.

      In any case, I’d strongly advise you to consult with your physical therapist or doctor regarding using the UPRIGHT GO device, if you have any concerns.

      Hi Dennis,

      We do not suggest exercising with the UPRIGHT GO device, as the adhesives are not sweatproof. When exercising, the adhesives may become loose due to sweat, and the UPRIGHT GO may fall off.

      If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]

      Hi Nicole,

      Yes, the UPRIGHT GO can be used by people of all ages.

      When using along with the UPRIGHT GO companion app, you are given a Training Plan. Each day you are given a timed training session where you work on your posture. As you progress, the training sessions will increase in duration and frequency.

      If this is something you feel works for you, you should be fine.

      Additionally, we do have a 30-day return policy, so you can always purchase the device to try out and return if you are not satisfied.

    How is the Upright Go 1 different than Upright Go 2? I have 1 already but the description of Upright Go 2 suggests it has multiple sensors – how does that work with only 1 sensor???

      Hi Julie,

      The UPRIGHT GO is a great posture trainer that has helped over 200,000 customers to improve their posture.

      The UPRIGHT GO 2 was designed and built according to the feedback we got from our customers about the UPRIGHT GO. On top of including all the great features of the UPRIGHT GO, the UPRIGHT GO 2’s adhesive surface was increased by 40% to improve the grip, the battery life is 3 times longer, and the UPRIGHT GO 2 itself is 50% smaller than the UPRIGHT GO.

      In regards to your question, the UPRIGHT GO 2 has an additional sensor that allows for a more accurate detection of your posture even more accurate.

      If you would like to give your UPRIGHT GO to someone else after you are done training, you can. However, make sure to connect your device to the app, so that you can ensure that your data has downloaded to the app and cleared off the GO device.

      Hi Mary,

      Each person’s training experience is different. When starting your training with the UPRIGHT GO device, you are given a training plan that lasts about a month.

      Every day you are given a daily training session where you actively work on your posture. These sessions increase in duration and frequency as you progress.

      If your daughter is able to train along with the plan, she will see a change in her posture.

    How does the accuracy and effectiveness of the device, when used with the necklace, compare to the accuracy and effectiveness when used with adhesive? Have you done studies? Thanks.

      Hi Bob,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      In regards to the effectiveness, whether you use the necklace or the adhesives, the UPRIGHT GO will be just as accurate.

      However, as with the adhesives, the device adheres to your back it may be slightly more accurate than the necklace which allows for the possibility that the UPRIGHT GO will move while on your back.

      Hi Amanda,

      Thank you for your question.

      While UPRIGHT GO devices are designed to be used on your spine, to detect your back movement, they can also be used in other locations.

      If you feel like you’re sitting straight, but your shoulders or head fall forward too much, we have something you can try.

      You can place the UPRIGHT GO between your shoulder and spine (play around until you find a spot that works best for you), and calibrate it there using the app when your shoulders or head are where you want them.

      Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have, at [email protected]

      Hi CA,

      The UPRIGHT GO devices train you to be more upright throughout the day. The UPRIGHT GO is great if you find that you slouch from your upper back and if you plan using it while standing, sitting at a desk or walking.

      This is not a medical device, and if sitting upright causes you pain it might not be for you. If you suffer from a medical condition and are concerned, consult a medical professional before training with the UPRIGHT GO.

      Hi Harvey,

      As we are not healthcare professionals, we cannot advise on such matters. We would suggest that you consult with your doctor/therapist prior to purchasing the device.

      In general, the UPRIGHT GO is intended to make you more aware of your posture, by sending a slight vibration once you slouch to remind you to be Upright.

    1 – I wear a gold necklace with a gold and diamond heart pendant. I choose to NEVER remove it. Is there any way to still use the Upright Go 2 necklace with it. I understand the physics of it all but is there some trick to bypass this issue WITHOUT removing my neck jewelry?
    2 – Have you addressed the issue of the UBS port coming off due to glue-to-rubber difficulty that was mentioned in a few of the reviews.
    I had my finger poised to click on ‘order’ when I decided to read your reviews. I’ll be happy to wait until you develop solutions for those 2 situations because I REALLY want to purchase your product.

      Hi Lou, thank you for your questions.

      The necklace should not be an issue with your gold necklace. If you are concerned, you can take any simple magnet that you have laying around and make sure that it will not stick to your necklace or pendant.

      In regards to the USB connector coming detached, this scenario is rare, and on the off chance it does occur, you can reach out to us and we will send you a replacement right away.

      Hi Janeen,

      The UPRIGHT GO devices only measure your slouch forward. If you sit in a chair and lean back, the UPRIGHT GO will not be able to detect this.
      However, if you sit in a chair and slouch forward, this is a movement that the UPRIGHT GO can measure.

      Hi Marvin,

      Thank you for your question.

      There are a few things to take into account:

      The UPRIGHT GO devices are resistant against sweat and moisture but not water-proof.

      However, while horse riding the body develops sweat and that may cause the adhesives to slide off.

      The UPRIGHT GO devices were not tested for use while horseback riding, only standing, sitting and walking so I cannot 100% guarantee that it will last a ride.

      What I would suggest when calibrating your device, is to be at the riding posture and then place the GO on your back and do the calibration.

      In any case, once you have completed your plan, we suggest training 2-4 times a week, for however long you see fit, in order to maintain your progress.
