MEET PAÓ

Posture, fitness, body awareness or peace of mind having a friend, a companion that tracks, enhances and gives feedback makes everything easier.

Don’t you think so?

QUALITY OF BEING

QUALITY OF BEING

Body awareness is more than an understanding of the parts that make up one's body, where they are located. It is about knowing how it feels, what it can do. It’s about listening to you body as you yourself are your body and there is still a lot more to learn.

Just like there is more to understanding life then the “quality of life” that’s why we’re using a term that we believe to be much more enlightening “Quality of Being”

Tracking fitness or activity without considering posture and mood is at least, resolving on insufficient data and in fact flat out wrong.

With this holistic approach to wellness including mindfulness, self confidence and body awareness paó helps you grow into a better version of yourself and does that in a beautiful package.

POWER OF POSTURE

POWER OF POSTURE

Posture is never only posture, it is the way your body communicates how you feel about your self and surroundings.

Posture is a clear indicator and an integral part of human body condition.

Correct posture is not only standing up right, it is a central part of our lives. Social scientists have spent a lot of time looking at the effects of our body language, or other people's body language on judgements. Human beings make strong judgments and inferences from body language. And those judgments can cause meaningful outcomes like who we hire, promote, or who we date.

When you feel powerful, you're more likely to have a strong posture, also when you have a strong posture you are more likely to actually feel powerful.

BETTER WITH A BUDDY

BETTER WITH A BUDDY

Posture, fitness, body awareness or peace of mind, no matter what we’re doing having a friend, a companion that tracks, enhances and gives feedback makes everything easier.

Don’t you think so?

We believe the what we as people need is not just plain technological devices but empathic and beautiful devices that will be true companions to our endeavour of body and self awareness.

paó helps the you to grow into a better version of yourself by not only giving recommendations but, also providing support and feedback, being a companion just like Tinkerbell is for Peter Pan.

MINDFULNESS

MINDFULNESS

Sometimes peace of mind is more important than anything.

Don’t you think so?

We believe mind and body are inseparable so how sufficient can a mindfulness exercise be, how can it take you out of whats happening in the present to a safe place if you’re not feeling it in your body?

paó helps you enhance various aspects of your body and behaviour via tracking multiple metrics and interpreting these normally isolated data in order to create a more detailed and comprehensive picture for you, triggerring a change of attitude, behaviour and mood.

WE BELIEVE IN AMY CUDDY

Our minds change our bodies, but it is also true that our bodies change our minds. We are influenced by our own our body language, our thoughts and our feelings and our physiology.

When you feel powerful, you're more likely to have a strong posture, also when you have a strong posture you are more likely to actually feel powerful.

Powerful and effective people also have lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels. That’s why having a good posture teaches the brain to be less stress-reactive.

DESIGN

DESIGN

We believe, building a wearable is profoundly different from building a rack server or a desktop computer, collecting dust, away from the eyes, pure function. The value of wearables is not about pure function but also, a design to tell a story. A wearable device is an accessory that tells stories about its owner, without them saying much. It is basically a functional fashion item, like a watch, tie or a scarf, doing what fashion has always done, underlining a persona.

We believe, a wearable is an avatar. In nature there there two ways to get out of predators you either try not to be seen or show how big, powerful you are . In our story, the name paó, the basic design form and the tagline “be proud” are derivatives this behaviour and the inspiration, the peacock, which paó means peacock in Catalan.

ACTIVITY AND MORE

ACTIVITY AND MORE

No wonder you’re having the back pain,with the economics and lifestyle of the 21st century, posture and fitness problems are a permanent part of our modern lives. Nowadays maintaining a good posture, being fit and energetic takes a special attention and intent.

The main purpose of paó is easing this friction, using sensor networks and behavioural mechanics. paó helps the you track, maintain and transform your posture, attitude and behaviour.

We believe, a wearable needs to be designed to be mobile on the body for the every one of us to get the most out of the experience. As we never know exactly what’s going to happen next but, we know paó will be with us.

By design, paó is flexible to be positioned on different parts of the body, on or beneath clothing, using magnets, medical grade adhesives, straps and clips.

We need clear directions and feedback to fulfil our goals. paó provides solid feedback and sound advice based on engaging UX design and behavioural mechanics principles.

Although showering users with big data is a common trend, an overwhelming majority of the world population is not data analysts. Since the fancy charts and graphics seen in most activity tracking apps are no use for the average person, it is getting harder to constitute a meaningful outcome from these ever more capable devices.

By deploying behavioural psychology mechanics, paó creates a clear path for you with ready to use, easy to implement scenarios to reach and fulfil your goals without taking a break from daily activities.

When you make a decision to change things no matter what’s happening in your day, paó is there for you.

Consider paó your little friend, taking note of your determination, how strong you are.

When you feel powerful, you're more likely to have a strong posture, also when you have a strong posture you are more likely to actually feel powerful.

Hold your head up high! You deserve this, you are the hero.
