DarioHealth, a leader in digital chronic condition management, announced the launch of the Upright GO S, a wearable device that suppresses slouching and enhances posture.
The device uses biofeedback to track the user’s posture and vibrates when they begin to slouch, signaling them to straighten up. It is placed on the upper back either by a hypoallergenic adhesive strip or using a silicone necklace.
“One of the strengths of Upright’s sensor-based solutions is the successful track record of consumer adoption. The Upright GO S continues that legacy by offering a more affordable option to make digital health solutions accessible to a larger number of people in support of our mission and membership growth strategy,” said Erez Raphael, CEO of DarioHealth.
New research published in the journal Demography documents the growing prevalence of chronic back and neck pain in U.S. adults, with the greatest increase in pain affecting those in lower socioeconomic classes. Employers are also paying attention, as back pain becomes a significant problem for their populations, especially for employees who spend significant amounts of time sitting. In addition, a recent survey of Upright by Dario users found that 78% agree that the increase in sedentary activities during the day are negatively impacting their health, further illustrating the need for preventative approaches, says a press release.
The Upright GO S represents an advancement in the company’s sensor technology and addresses the demand for more accessible musculoskeletal care across its consumer base.
