Unfortunately, people, especially office workers and all those who lead a sedentary and sedentary lifestyle, are increasingly suffering from diseases of the spine. Many stoop and cannot keep their back straight on their own, which leads to scoliosis. In such cases, a unique gadget developed by the Swiss company UpRight will come to the rescue.
UpRight is a small gadget that is attached in the lumbar lordosis area with a special adhesive tape and allows you to maintain an even posture. Thanks to the built-in three-axis accelerometer and strain gauge sensor, the device determines the position of the body and, using the built-in vibration motor, sends a signal to the user if he starts to slouch.
UpRight connects to a smartphone with a special application installed via the Bluetooth 4.0 low energy wireless interface and transmits all data.
A built-in lithium-polymer rechargeable battery provides the device with up to five days of battery life. A microUSB port is provided for charging it.
The project is currently at the fundraising stage. The developers have already managed to collect more than 17 thousand dollars out of the 70 thousand needed to start mass production. You can support the project and order a unique gadget for posture correction on the IndieGoGo site. The price of the issue is $ 129 (for pre-order, the cost is much lower).
