'ALEX' is a personal posture coach that is designed to alleviate neck and back pain. As many people know, hunching over a laptop all day can lead to severe injuries. Now there is a way to track your slouching habits so that you can make the necessary adjustments.

ALEX is a Kickstarter-funded wearable that functions as a personal posture coach. The device sits on the nape of your neck and monitors your posture. If you move into a poor position for an extended period of time, the device will vibrate and notify you of the need to adjust your posture. All of this data is then sent to an accompanying app that allows users to observe their habits and track their progress over time.

With millions of office workers suffering from neck and back pain, ALEX provides a useful solution for keeping bad habits in check.
