Upright : Posture Trainer

A perfect device for all those people who have trouble keeping their back upright is the posture trainer called upright. This is a device that is supposed to be attached on your back and makes sure to keep you upright. It attaches to your back and gently vibrates every time you slouch, reminding you to correct your posture. Upright syncs automatically to the free iOS/ Android app and creates a custom training plan for you.

Here’s how it works:
You stick the device to your back (a bit more on that later), and then you calibrate your upright and slouched positions. The trainer itself has flexible arms with sensors in them that detect how much they move, and if they stray too far from the “good” position you set in the first step, you get a zap.

If you’ve ever fallen asleep on top of your phone with it set to Vibrate and then received a call, you know what this feels like, and “gentle” is not how I’d describe it. But it definitely gets results. Rather than hunkering down on your skin to monitor you all day like something out of a David Cronenberg film, however, Upright is designed for discreet, focused training sessions of between 15 minutes and an hour a day. You run these through the free companion app that has all of those helpful smileys.

And that’s good news because it probably won’t stay on much longer than that. You put it on by cleaning the area with an included alcohol wipe and then sticking on a hypoallergenic adhesive pad. The device then attaches to that using hook-and-loop fasteners.
