NOTE: This app is suitable only for the UPRIGHT GO device (and not for the UPRIGHT PRO).
The UPRIGHT GO is worn discreetly on your upper back and provides you with immediate posture feedback.
In TRAINING mode, the GO gently vibrates when you slouch, to remind you to maintain an upright posture. The vibration can be easily customized to best fit your personal lifestyle and preferences. In TRACKING mode, the GO keeps track of your daily posture habits without vibrating.
Through the UPRIGHT GO mobile app, you will be guided with tutorials, and you will be able to track your progress and view your daily statistics. The app features live monitoring of your posture status, using an animated character.
The app generates a personalized training plan customized to meet your individual needs. A training plan includes a set of daily training goals. Each goal represents the recommended time for you to train each day.
The app also writes your workout data to the Health app (HealthKit), to enable integration between workouts and Upright training.
In the Apple Watch app will enable you to view your current posture status, to switch between TRAINING and TRACKING modes, and to get live training feedback on the go.
* You can now use the app to rate your posture and track your progress over time.
* Bug-fixes and UI improvements.

A Life Changing Device
I am a 62 year old female who has lived with kyphosis (hunched shoulders) my whole life. I would try to stand up straight whenever someone, or myself would tell me to. Unfortunately that thought would not last very long and I would be slouching again. If given the choice of being the perfect weight (I’m chubby) or having good posture, I would choose good posture. I know without intervention my posture will continue to decline as I age. Yes, the Upright-Go came to my rescue. Through behavioral modification and strengthening of less-used muscles, my posture is changing...my subconscious behavior is acting as a reminder when the device is not on my back. In my monthly visit to my chiropractor visit four days ago, he observed a change in my spine! He says my shoulders are more even with each other and my spine is straightening. He plans to X-ray me next month to confirm and observe what he felt in the examination. He has been monitoring my progress and may soon be recommending the Upright Go-Pro to his other patients based on my success. Also, customer support was there for me, checking on me, offering tips, the whole journey. Another bonus, I’m getting used to feeling like I’m taller because when I look down at the ground, it’s farther away, like when I wear high heel shoes. Looking taller, thus slimmer, is the Holy Grail of most women... sign me up!
I love you guys forever. I never knew this could happen to me.
A great way to correct your posture
Ever since I had eye surgery following my head trauma when I was young, I’ve slouched. I’d gone through a few sessions of back therapy with moderate success, but I’d revert back to my poor posture habits. Enter UPRIGHT GO. Rather than requiring an uncomfortable and finicky device to force you into the correct posture, this device gives a gentle buzz on your spine which reminds you to sit/stand up straight.
I work a physical job in the field as an archaeologist so only wear the device at home when I’m working on my computer, but have taken it out when I go shopping to remind me to stand up straight. In any case, I’ve had a noticeable difference in the way I stand. Thanks to the constant reminders in training mode, I consciously try to maintain a good posture on my own. The tracking mode shows progress if you want to wear it through the day.
Sure, if you’re doing dishes or something that requires frequent bending, the results will reflect the “poor posture” you assume to do the job. Fortunately, the UPRIGHT team is aware of this and is constantly updating their device and platform to allow more freedom to the user.
So, if you’re looking for a way to strengthen your back and core muscles, want to correct your posture, and have been struggling to find the right device, give this a shot. It’s a worthwhile investment for the results.
I NEVER write reviews, but this device really works. I got it to help my posture in front of the computer screen at the office, and find it works just as well on morning walks. I saw immediate results when I began using it in November. My discipline took a hit over the holidays, but I was able to get back into it in January.
The chat service is helpful if you have questions ... And they continue to make improvements with each release.
I’ll warn you that the device isn’t as helpful while doing chores around the house, because it reads bending over as slouching. I choose not to wear it then, but believe the benefits carry over. I couldn’t be more pleased!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
