Upright’s wearable device connects to your back and helps improve your posture. Thankfully, we had the chance to test it out
If the opening of this article hasn’t already prompted you to straighten your back, give it a go right now. Try keeping your back straight for the rest of this article. Unfortunately you may find that after five minutes or less, you will be longing to slouch again. If this is the case, Upright has the product for you.
As well as causing back pain in the short and long term, slouching affects your body language, mood, self confidence and more. It is estimated that as many as 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
Vast research demonstrates the benefits of good posture. It was found that “adopting an upright seated posture in the face of stress can maintain self-esteem, reduce negative mood, and increase positive mood compared to a slumped posture.” Furthermore good posture can improve mood and energy levels and increase lung capacity by as much as 30 percent.
Oded Cohen founded Upright when he couldn’t find an adequate solution for his mother’s slouching. So in July 2012, he started Upright in Israel, with a mission to eradicate bad posture. In May 2014, Upright launched an Indiegogo campaign and raised $155,244 from over 2,000 backers.
Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:
Maintaining a proper posture is important in order to avoid developing spine complications in the future. Standing upright while sitting at an office desk can ultimately help prevent back and neck pain as well as other symptoms, however, it might not always be easy to maintain a correct posture. Through the use of various equipment tools designed to improve posture, many individuals can experience better health.
