Are you happy with your posture? If not, the Upright Pro may be the answer.
The company recently sent us one of the small, soft, and lightweight wearable devices. The Upright was made to be worn directly on the spine and is made with medical grade silicon. It’s easy to use and comes with a charger, instruction booklet, adhesive stickers and alcohol pads. Users should plan to download the companion app that helps with setup and times training sessions.
Training sessions can be as short as 5 minutes per day and are administered. The app features a learning mode, which runs in the background while you’re training and adapts to your back and movements.
There are two places for this device, either on your spine just below your neck or the small of your back. Simply clean the area with the supplied alcohol prep pads, attach an adhesive strip to the device, and then stick the device on your back.
Once you launched a training session in the app, you’ll be good to go. Every time you slouch when you have it on, the device will vibrate to let you know that you’re bent over. The vibration is not painful, but it’s not pleasant either. However, I assume that was the point so you don’t slouch too much!
The downside is that I dropped something during a session and when I went to pick it up the device recognized bending over as slouching. So be aware of that.
After about a week, I noticed a heightened awareness to how much I was slouching, even when I wasn’t wearing the Upright Pro. So I imagine continued use of this would only extend that feeling.
This wearable goes for about $129.95, weighs about 25 grams and has a battery life of more than 8 hours. It’s sweat proof and does have CE and CPSC safety certifications. Want one? Click Here.
