About

Do you tell your children to stop slouching over their smartphones and tablets every day? Are you worried about their backs?

If so, you’re not alone. With tablets and smartphones, kids are logging more hours in front of screens than ever before.

And you're right to be worried about the impact its having on their health.

But what if you could get your kids to sit up straight without nagging?

Now you can with EyeForcer, the world's first medical wearable device designed specifically to protect kids' backs. Chiropractor approved. Patent pending.

  • Easy to wear - the EyeForcer looks like a pair of glasses without lenses and is lightweight, durable, and comfortable. It also comes in cool colours!
  • Simple setup - just install the Android app, turn on the EyeForcer, and let your child start playing on his or her device.
  • Personalize it - program the number of "poor posture warnings" you want your child to receive before the program he or she is using shuts down.
  • Kid-proof - if you're thinking, "My child will just take the EyeForcer off when I leave the room," don't worry because we thought of that too. If the glasses are removed, children will continue to receive poor posture warnings and the apps they are using will shut down.

Give Them a Healthy Start

Technology is here to stay, so teach your children the benefits of proper posture at a young age. Trust us, they'll thank you later in life.

Help Them Avoid Serious Medical Conditions

Hunching over smartphones, tablets and consoles has caused a new medical condition called Gameboy Disease or Tech Neck, which includes symptoms like poor posture, neck and back pain, headaches, vision problems and mood issues.

This condition is dangerous for children because their spines are still developing. If kids continue to slouch over devices, their spines can actually grow in the direction of their slouching.

If left untreated, Gameboy Disease can lead to obesity, depression, and spinal disc herniation.  

Friendly Posture Reminders Right to Your Child's Personal Device

Early feedback on prototypes showed that children respond very quickly to the EyeForcer’s notifications.

When you ask kids to do something - like sit up straight - they don't always listen. But the EyeForcer gives them the independence to correct their posture on their own. They listen because BETTER POSTURE = MORE PLAYING TIME!

A Hassle-Free Wearable

Good posture starts with a basic fashion accessory: glasses. The EyeForcer doesn't require kids to wear something bulky, uncomfortable, or unusual. And the EyeForcer doesn't have lenses, so children who already wear glasses can still use it.

It's Easy to Use

In four simple steps, your child can be on his or her way to better posture!

Risks and challenges

This is Medical Wearable Solutions’ first product launch and we are dedicated to making it a great product for all our backers.

The EyeForcer works best on Android devices since it can shut down the programs. But due to Apple’s restrictions, iOS (Apple) devices can only send push notifications to warn users of poor posture; therefore we are unable to shut down programs on iOS (Apple) devices. We are currently working on other mechanisms for iOS devices.

We are managing shipping and delivery for the first time, so we know there is potential for logistical delays. However, we are confident that we will be able to produce and deliver the EyeForcer for the following reasons:

- We have an excellent research and development team with more than 25 years of experience in hardware and software development.

- We’ve already produced working models of the EyeForcer using our current facilities and are prepared to scale our operation to meet increased demand.

Our team understands this campaign is an opportunity to establish a passionate customer base. It is our mission to leave our backers completely satisfied with our product and service.
