Electronic Posture Correcting Trainer keeps you looking sharp

electronic-posture-correcting-trainerTeach a child in a way where he should go, and when he grows up, he will not depart away from it. That is a proverb that is very true and shoots straight like an arrow, although it does see how parents these days have taken to technology to “babysit” their little ones, while the adults mingle and talk to one another, leaving the iPads and other smartphones to be their “teachers” and “guide”. The values that one picks up in movies, songs and other pop culture leanings might not be agreeable to all, but our children are exposed to those all the time. Same too, goes for your posture. If you have not developed a good posture from young, it can be rather challenging to sit up or stand up straight all the time. Thankfully, there is the $99.95 Electronic Posture Correcting Trainer that might just help out those who would like to make a positive change in their lives.

The Electronic Posture Correcting Trainer is rather slim in nature, where it will clip on to snug-fitting clothing so that it can monitor posture as well as alert users in the event where they slouch. Once you have it secured below the collarbone with an unobtrusive magnet, the electronic trainer will then need to be user-calibrated in order to identify each user’s ideal posture. At any point in time does it detect slumping, the device will then vibrate gently so that the wearer will be coached to stand or sit up straighter. It will be paired via Bluetooth to a smartphone, where one tallies hours of good posture, lets users set goals, and stores up to a month of data to track progress. It also functions as an activity tracker so that it can calculate the number of steps taken, distance travelled, and calories burned. Each lithium-ion battery has a battery life of up to five days after a two-hour charge with the included USB dock. Not the first posture trainer that we have seen, and definitely won’t be the last, either.
