The ALEX+ is a wearable that was designed to improve people's neck posture in just 21 days, a tool that many in this day and age would require.

The wearable is a simple, relatively non-intrusive gadget that sits at the base of the neck like a reverse headband. It offers the wearer reminders, exercises and tracking capabilities with an accompanying app to ensure that they are sitting with their heads straight. When the ALEX+ detects that the wearer is slouching, it vibrates gently so that they can readjust their neck posture.

This wearable was created in response to many people's lifestyles today – with all the time consumers spend working on their computers and looking down at their phones, improper posture has become a widespread problem.
