Not what I expected but it seems to do the trick
by ION (3 out of 5 stars)

Overall it is an interesting product with some good future potential. However, it was not what i expected it to be. The device is described as something you can wear- it is not case. Well at least, it is not fully accurate. This device can be 'glued' with a medical grade adhesive to the lower back and used to train you muscle memory to sit upright (the other side of the adhesive strip has Velcro to attach the device to it). The application generates a training program (see the picture) for 21 days with a gradual time increase. You need to calibrate the device each time you attach it to your back. Once calibrated if you deviate from the "upright" position the device starts vibrating and reminds you to straighten your back. You cannot really wear it for an entire day as: 1. you would need to pause it every time you change your position, as it will vibrate. 2. The adhesive strip will not hold on the body for that long due to the various factors as body perspiration and etc.

Here are the pros and cons of this device:

PROS:
1. It is very sensitive and seems to do the trick, showing you when you start 'curving' you spine
2. I am 16 days in and I have a good understanding when I start slouching now. There might even be a slight improvement.
3. The idea is very original and I believe it is better to teach you muscles vs. wearing some support belt that will only do the trick while you are wearing it.

CONS:
1. I would like to be able to put this thing on at the morning and wear it an entire day. If you follow the 'western' business dress code, putting it on during a day is a bit of a pain. (if you get to wear T-shirts, it is not an issue). Currently I wear it while I watch the TV after work. Most of my back problems happen at work while in front of the PC.
2. Hopefully one of the next firmware upgrade will enable wearing it while walking instead of just sitting still
3. The app is very basic right now. (see the attachment). The middle of the screen has 3 faces, the happy face is green when you wear it, the middle is yellow, and the unhappy turns red. When it is red, the device vibrates. Sometime it is hard to distinguish the green and yellow as the faces are very small. My suggestion to the UPRIGHT is to remove the Chart to another page and make the faces larger. May be even leave one face on the screen only.
4. I still don't see where I can buy the additional adhesive strips. There were 60 in the box, but I have used 18 already. Also what would be their cost?

Product does not work
by djoeke (1 out of 5 stars)

It did not work. Only the first time I tried it, it was calibrating and after that it just not worked. The last 4 months I have been busy with Upright to fix the issue, but they have no solution. Furthermore, they will not replace it or refund it. Over all I am totally unhappy with this product and the customer service.

device didn't work out of the box
by Alicia L. (1 out of 5 stars)

I tried contacting the seller with no response. This product would not work at all out of the box. The item would not sync to the phone, nor could I even identify that there was a bluetooth link to even be able to link to. I tried all the recommendations of turning on/off the device, my bluetooth, and the app. As well as trying to link to another phone. None of these options worked.

I called Amazon and will be returning this product.

this device is only good if you are sitting down all the time
by ARON (2 out of 5 stars)

I had big hopes for this product when we first received it. We were finally going to fix our posture problem with upright. First we had issues with phone and device Bluetooth connection. And then we figured it out, this device is only good if you are sitting down all the time.. it is not for moving around people even if they have a bad posture.

Returned!
