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. 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.
