How to get started
Before you can start your training you will have to switch on the upright device by pressing the center button on it. Then you need so sync your mobile phone via the Upright app with your Upright device.
The Upright can be placed either on the upper or on the lower back. There is probably some experience necessary until you have learned which place is ideal to place it on.
Once you have switched on the device and synced it with your mobile phone and placed it onto your back you have to calibrate it via your mobile phone app.
In order to start the calibration, you have to first sit up straight for around 10 seconds and then slouch for again 10 seconds. If the calibration has worked correctly the device will now automatically recognize when you are slouching.
The recalibration process has to be done each time you attach the Upright trainer.
Special hint: In case you have difficulties to get the app working, make sure to download the latest firmware for the device, which you can do in the apps settings tab.
