He knew that using the combination of technology and fun to condition better habits around posture and breathing was very achievable. After four years of development, we are ready to offer a solution anchored by our technology which focuses on posture and breathing. We believe that while people are in front of a screen, they can be improving themselves - so we designed and had patented a visual way to teach and maintain good posture and breathing for the user for a variety of activities. Since the company’s inception, we have focused on the development of hardware and the UX for both the wearer ‘mindee’ and the healthcare professional ‘minderPRO’.
