This new wearable device improves one’s understanding of the concepts and techniques presented in the Gokhale Method, a practice created by Esther Gokhale that teaches people healthy posture for a pain-free life. SpineTracker provides the student greater autonomy in judging their posture against their personal ideals, and measuring their progress in class.

“Our mission at the Gokhale Method is to make back pain rare. To this end, we combine the power of our SpineTracker wearable device with the education and training of our instructors to help our students achieve healthy posture targets for their own unique lifestyle,” said Esther Gokhale, founder of the Gokhale Method. “The SpineTracker is used by our instructors across the nation to assess each student and help them live pain-free lives.”

Through the additional features in the Gokhale Method, students can upload data to their profiles on the website and track their progress in real-time spine simulation.
