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

                 

People are increasingly becoming more sedentary, spending at least 10 – 15 hrs a day at work, school, and home. With the modern rhythm of life, we often forget about doing physical activities, or just walking. More than 80% of people suffer from problems of the spine. For children, the ages from eight to seventeen years are the most important period for the correct formation of posture.  

We created Mevics because, in our experience, we know the importance of a well-postured spine, and daily activity. Mevics is a small, wearable device which monitors you and your health throughout the day. Mevics is ideal for all aspects of your life. It will assist you in the office, when doing sports, and, it will prove indispensable for your children.  

We want to show you that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and staying fit are easy, even if you have an office job. Mevics ensures correct spinal posturing and proper breathing, because our health is directly, and literally, reliant upon our spine.

As soon as you set out for a walk or a run, Mevics helps to monitor your activity from that point on. It shows how many steps you have taken, the distance walked or run, and, how many calories you have burnt throughout the day.

Mevics takes care of your child's healthy posture in those early, formative years. Our gadget helps to develop correct posturing when sitting, which prevents curvature of the spine.  

You will not have to worry any more about a slouching posture whilst you are immersed in work. Leave those cares to Mevics.  

Mevics keeps records of your activities: it calculates the steps, calories burnt, and the distance travelled throughout the day.

Mevics analyzes the statistics of your activities and sends notification to your smartphone about the need to be more active, and also to do sport.

Mevics interacts with your smartphone and you can monitor all the information to help you manage the device. It displays the current position of the spine, collects and analyzes data about your activity, and allows you to control the device.  

Are you slouching or sitting correctly now? Mevics will show your answer in real time.

Notifications and reminders
Notifications and reminders

Children and teenagers love innovation and modern technology. Smartphones, computers, gadgets, and mobile applications, are the daily companions of children. Correct spinal posture and sitting position positively affects the health of children and teenagers. Correct posture formation for children is extremely important, and is paramount in preventing possible curvature of the spine.

Mevics vibrates when the child slouches or does not sit correctly. The vibration reminds the child of the need to straighten the back. The vibrations are noiseless, so classmates and teachers will not hear how Mevics is helping to control and maintain the correct posture.

Mevics successfully controls and monitor a child's posture and activities: number of steps, distance covered, and calories expended. Parents can view the child’s posture statistics and levels of physical activity. This important information can help in forming a healthy diet, and planning sports activities.

Mevics Daily - the application that focuses on three categories: Spine, Sport, and Food. There are a selection of articles with simple tips, on health, exercise, and proper nutrition, for use in the office and in everyday life.

The Mevics team has specially developed an application which cares about you and your health. Mevics Daily - Available now, download at AppStore and PlayMarket. In the Mevics Daily we have the best tips for improving your posture, nutrition, and sport. With Mevics you can immediately begin improving your health.

Mevics looks neat and attractive on any kind of clothes. You can wear it without being afraid that it won't suit your outfit. Mevics can be both your personal assistant and a stylish part of your image – available in two colors.

Risks and challenges

We have completed manufacturing design of the product and have produced about 50 working prototypes in a total of 5 iterations.

We have also started negotiations with a mass production manufacturer to make sure that our device is produced and delivered to our customers on time. But there is a risk that mass the production process may require different design decisions which may take more time to implement. We manage this risk by allowing extra few weeks for this.

Also, we are responsible for unforeseen circumstances and promise to keep every backer informed if something doesn’t go according to plan.
We will do the best to solve any problems.
