UPRIGHT Technologies is the world leader in smart wearable posture trainers. I wanted to learn more about how they are helping people build long-term positive habits and bring posture awareness into their lives by leveraging technology.
A few months ago, I read that Americans are sitting an average of 13 hours a day! According to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, this sedentary lifestyle increases the chances of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Still, it also negatively influences your posture, causing lower back pain. Your bad posture could be causing your lower back pain. So, moral of the story, don’t get trapped by the “sitting disease.
However, it occurred to me that at a time when people worldwide are working from home at scale, many are probably sitting down for even more extended periods.
Upright Technologies aims to fix the world’s slouching problem with one, small consumer product. It uses patented technology to determine when the user is slouching. Using a slightly noticeable vibration, Upright’s devices let the user know when they are slouching and straighten up! Their products, Upright Go and Upright Go 2, provide realtime feedback for the user, giving them a full analysis of their training sessions and their progress.
With the growing importance of workplace health and wellness in general, Upright has become a power player in the consumer technology industry, especially in the health and wellness market. I invited Ori Fruhauf to the podcast to learn more about Upright Go and how it can improve our posture during our increasingly sedentary lifestyle.
