Best posture trainer to correct bad posture

Last Updated on

In this article I recommend you to consider a posture trainer because a poor posture causes back pain and makes you look old and fat. Maybe you already have a weight lifting tracker and do workouts to strengthen your back muscles. Moreover you also know some good posture exercises for the office.

But most of the time you are sloughing and your spine is contorted in an unnatural position because you just simply forget to sit upright. And no matter what you try you still do not have a perfect posture?

Now take a look at this awesome new technology that is able to track, train and even correct you posture.

UPRIGHT Posture Trainer

UPRIGHT call their device a “trainable” and in fact it is a real smart wearable that trains your posture.

How does UPRIGHT work?

Wear your UPRIGHT between 5 minutes to an hour a day to fix your bad posture. UPRIGHT gives you immediate feedback because it detects automatically when you’re slouching.

Once the smart wearable posture trainer detects your slouching it will vibrate until you sit upright again.

Technical features

Because of its low weight (25 grams) you will barely notice it. Inside the posture trainer has an accelerometer and a strain gauge to measure your posture. It automatically syncs via Bluetooth Low Energy with your iOS and Android smartphone. With its small rechargeable Li-ion batteries UPRIGHT will last more than 8 working hours.

Lumo Lift Posture Coach

The Lumo Lift is also a posture coach that helps you to improve your posture. It is the successor of the Lumo Back tracker.
