About

Years of looking down at our devices have created an epidemic of text neck. ALEX+ is the wearable that keeps your chin up, replacing years of poor posture habits with perfect, pain-free posture in 21 days.

| We’re Buzzing

| The Text Neck Epidemic

When you crane your neck, you’re putting 60 pounds (27kg) of effective weight on your spine. Years of poor posture can have serious long-term implications for your neck.

We spend an average of 2 to 4 hours a day looking down at our smartphones. And then there’s the time spent with our noses in laptop computers, tablets and books. It all combines to a growing epidemic; 45% of office workers suffer from text neck.

Here’s the real problem: Even if you are aware of your text neck, it’s difficult to keep reminding yourself and maintain good posture throughout the day.

There are plenty of posture coaches, trackers, and wearables on the market, but only one can track the position of your neck: ALEX+.

ALEX+ is the only wearable that helps you beat text neck for the long term. Reminders, exercises and tracking help you form a lifetime habit of good posture in 21 days.

 

 

 

| How to Use ALEX+

ALEX+ is very easy to use. Wear it over your ears and behind your neck, calibrate on your app, and we do the rest. It’s also super comfortable – no need for long straps or sticky pads that wear out!

| ALEX+ Features

No one will notice it. Not even you.

A perfect fit for all shapes and sizes.

Practice and exercise with Dr. ALEX.

ALEX+ analyzes your posture 10 times per second.

10 days of heavy use on a single charge.

No need to worry about hair or sweat.

| The All-New ALEX+ App

 

ALEX+ delivers consistent results. With Dr. ALEX, a guided exercise program, you can work on habit-forming exercises for better posture. It currently offers 4 programs to help you for the long run. Simply put on ALEX+, follow the instructor, and ALEX+ will analyze your form and count to make sure you get the right results.

You can track your progress on the ALEX+ App. Check to see how you are doing over time, proportion of good vs poor posture, and how you do even without the alerts.

With ALEX+ App, you can customize your ALEX+ experience by adjusting settings to your liking, such as vibration strength, at what degree ALEX+ alerts you, how long before the alert, etc.

| ALEX+ In Action

ALEX+ tracks your posture in real-time and alerts you when you slouch. You can also exercise with Dr. ALEX to form a lifelong habit of good posture. 

The all new ALEX+ app offers accurate tracking, guided exercises, and customization.

| Proven Results

Last year we launched our campaign for the original ALEX and nearly 900 of you joined our cause. This year we’ve taken your feedback and made ALEX+ even better!

| ALEX+ Improvements

Our first Kickstarter campaign in 2016 was a big success, thanks to almost 900 backers. Based on their feedback, we’ve made ALEX+ much more comfortable and adjustable. And ALEX+ app now offers tools to guide you every step along the path toward a perfect, pain-free posture.

 

We made ALEX+ way smaller and lighter. It stays out of the way when you are wearing glasses or headphones.

We replaced plastic with silicon in order to make ALEX+more comfortable and stylish. 

You can adjust the length by simply extending the legs, making it comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes.

Adjust settings such as vibration strength, at what degree ALEX+ alerts you, how long before the alert, and more. Keep adjusting the settings as you improve for even better results.

The new app offers more functionality in a user-friendly way. Enjoy guided posture exercises, advanced tracking, and intuitive user experience.

| The Crusaders Against Text Neck

Risks and challenges

We successfully delivered the original ALEX to nearly 900 backers last year, and we learned a lot about mass producing a product and international shipping in the process. That said, there is always the possibility that an unforeseen circumstance could delay shipments.

30-day satisfaction guaranteed return policy

We’re sure you’ll love ALEX+. That’s why we are offering a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so you can be just as sure. If you want to return ALEX+ for any reason, please contact us at alex@alexposture.com. We will be happy to help you with the refund. (Shipping charges, Kickstarter and credit card fees are not refundable.)
