Now available in Canada! ALEX monitors unconscious body movement automatically and helps you build positive posture habits.
Digital devices have created an epidemic of poor posture. A few minutes of slouching over a screen can cause short term stiffness and long term back and neck problems. We've developed ALEX to help you correct poor posture.
ALEX is the only wearable posture tracker and coach that helps you avoid neck pain now, and in the future. When your posture is poor for more than a few minutes, ALEX vibrates to gently remind you to correct it. ALEX measure the position of your neck and head in real time using an extremely precise pivot sensor and three axis accelerometer. Because ALEX is positioned on your neck, it can track the exact position of your head and neck to determine bad posture.
We've used flexible and light weight materials to make sure that ALEX is always comfortable to wear. A companion coaching app lets you fully customize ALEX, adjusting the frequency and intensity of alerts, and guides you to address bad habits and tracks your progress towards better posture over time.
CEO Jonathan Kim: 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. ALEX addresses the root causes of chronic posture problems and helps you fix your posture early on.
