Forme.science: Fast Facts

More than half (60% to 80%) of all adults will experience back pain within their lifetime. As many as 70% will experience neck pain that interferes with their daily activities. This has spawned a $100 billion industry as people search for a solution and -- at the end of a long journey that often yields disappointing results -- salvation.

Forme.science was founded to deliver a new therapeutic solution, both natural and sustainable, to help consumers correct and train posture by engaging muscle memory.

This Problem Affects ALL Of Us

No matter how young or old, we are all at risk for poor posture, back and neck pain

Poor posture has been referred to as the silent killer of the workplace. This is because most office workers spend their days sitting in a wide range of positions. Facing a computer screen or iphone and little else, it's easy to fidget, bend and hunch over -- none of which feel terribly good, and all of which can cause long-term problems. But breaking that habit is easier said than done.

Occupation fixed forward posture and repetitive stress exacerbate these issues, so shoulder, back and neck problems are also common among people who do physical work. Even the most elite athletes are at risk -- and with increasing demand to recover faster than ever, they are often pressured to get back to their profession. Think about a pro golfers playing 5-6 rounds a week for a whole year and year after year.  The stress placed on the spine and increased muscle tension often lead to injury and surgery.

What about when the day is over? Surely, we must all end our bad work habits and stand up straight, right?

Wrong -- our mobile devices have turned us into a "tech neck society," causing additional problems that, if not rectified, could turn into even bigger problems down the line.
