The 8 Best Smart Posture Correctors
This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Bad posture can lead to a number of issues later in life, including chronic pain, tension headaches, and even poor circulation. These smart correctors come in a variety of different wearable styles and designs, but they all have one thing in common: their sensors alert you when you have deviated from proper spinal alignment to help train your body to keep your back straight. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Posture is important for more than just looking good. It can help prevent back pain and other issues as you age, which is something anyone can appreciate. If you prefer something a bit more high-tech than a simple brace, then you'll want to consider one of the options on this list.
While most of the models we selected can be hidden beneath clothing, few are as discreet as the Upright Go 2 and Lumo Lift. These are both tiny devices that you stick to your skin between your shoulder blades, and which alert you to poor posture via gentle vibrations. They also connect to an app that will track your progress over time and, in the case of the Lumo Lift, which doubles as an activity tracker.
The TruPosture Trainer For Women and TruPosture Trainer Shirt For Men are interesting options that look almost like ordinary clothing, but are capable of detecting when you lean too far forwards or backwards throughout your day and provide you with reminders that you posture is off. They are slightly more advanced than most others in the fact that they can produce the vibration in the exact spot where your body is out of proper position, making you more conscientious of what you are doing and how best to correct it.
If you think that vibrations might not be enough to help you fix your problem, you may be better off with a model that combines supportive straps with bio-feedback, like the Hiroumer Intelligent Straightener, Sense-U Brace, and MeaMae Care Reminder.
