In this day and age, good posture is a thing of the past. Technology seems to have played a role in causing us to be habitual slouchers. Technology may also have a solution. The Upright Go is a pad that fits to people’s backs and “zaps” them almost like a dog collar zapping a dog when he crosses the invisible fence. The Upright Go trains the body to correct it’s poor posture as it happens. An app can be used to gather statistical data to alleviate the problem.
- Modern technology has induced many of us to spend a lot of time hunched over handheld devices.
- A new app seeks to use technology to fix a problem caused by technology by tracking one’s posture for them.
- Learning new habits like keeping shoulders squared and back instead of tipped forward over the phone can be tough, but save them pain later.
