What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

How's your posture?

Are you slouching?

If you're like most people, bad posture is one of the top habits you'd like to break. As we all spend more time sitting at desks than standing, our posture degrades, regularly leading to back and neck pain.

Straighten up!

The Perfect Posture Coach is designed to correct your posture in a few weeks with just 30 minutes of daily coaching.

Once you've regained strong posture, you'll probably, like us, enjoy improved confidence, feel more attractive and avoid chronic back pain.

How it works 

Set your desired posture in advance and use the device's friendly sensory reminders to correct your posture when it collapses beyond the threshold you've selected. The Perfect Posture Coach constantly evaluates the position of your neck and back via a magnetic sensor, measuring flux density as a proxy for distance to monitor your spine alignment.

How to use it 

Wear the Perfect Posture Coach just 30 minutes per day at home or at work. Enjoy rapid posture improvement. Most who tried our product have experienced improvement in as little as two weeks.

 

30 minutes is long enough to adjust kinesthetic pathways in the brain and short enough that developing muscles stay strong and limber. 

Back Pain and Posture Statistics

"Prevent back pain with good posture."-Mayo Clinic

While 50% will experience back pain each year and 80% at some point in life [1], improving posture is heralded by Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Harvard, Johns Hopkins and many others as a top preventive strategy [2,3,4,5].

In the making

We’ve developed the Perfect Posture Coach over the past few years, emphasizing comfort and hardcore biomechanics. We’re delighted with its functionality and excited to share it with a large audience for the first time.

Timeline

The Perfect Posture Coach will ship in less than 6 months after the campaign ends.

Team

After graduating from UCLA’s HSSEAS Engineering School with an electrical engineering degree, Dr. Limonadi began his career at IBM, quickly rising to Senior Associate Electrical Engineer/Scientist and earning IBM’s Outstanding Technical Achievement Award. After 5 years at IBM, he re-entered academia to pursue a Neurosurgery degree at Dartmouth followed by residency at Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Limonadi now serves as Director of Neurosurgery at Eisenhower Neuroscience Institute in Rancho Mirage, California and has earned Top Doctor’s accolades nationally from America's Top Doctor publisher Castle Connolly and locally from Palm Spring’s Life. While practicing neurosurgery full time over the past decade, Dr. Limonadi has been active in research and development, some of which has inspired the Perfect Posture Coach.

Risks and challenges

While new manufacturing is never easy, whether refining the injection molding process, optimizing firmware, finalizing hardware at scale, or orchestrating an consistent assembly algorithm, our experience with pilot production has gone a long way toward minimizing risk for full scale manufacturing.

We’ve tested our suppliers and faced off with the inherent pitfalls of manufacturing, learning valuable lessons and gaining an understanding the time and investment needed.

Having already created and tested this pilot device, we believe the acumen we've gained will be critical in executing a next generation Perfect Posture Coach.
