Smartphones and laptops have created an epidemic of poor posture. A few minutes of slouching over small screens can cause immediate pain and stiffness. But the long-term impact is more serious: Chronic back and neck problems. Research shows that about 80% of Americans suffer from forward head posture and ‘text neck’. Most don’t even know these syndromes exist. Over time poor posture leads to complex skeletal issues, debilitating back and neck conditions and severe pain.
Comfortable and Precise
Most posture or fitness trackers go on your wrist, your back or clip onto your clothing. Because ALEX is positioned on your neck, it can track the exact position of your head and neck to determine bad posture.
When your posture is poor for more than the time you set, ALEX vibrates to gently remind you to correct it.
Companion Coaching App
A companion coaching app lets you fully customize ALEX, adjusting the frequency and intensity of alerts. It guides you to address bad habits and tracks your progress towards better posture, over time.
