World's first posture stimulating T-shirt Percko

Oct '15
The world's first posture stimulating T-shirt by French startup Percko, also known as Second-Skin, is unlike any other lumbar support device. The second-skin removes work from back muscles and activates the whole spine from the pelvis to the neck so wearers intuitively learn how to fix their own posture, Percko said in a statement.

Now in a funding drive, Percko first launched its campaign on September 29, 2015 and within 7 hours the campaign hit its funding goal of €30,000 on the global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Although the campaign still has 25 days left on Kickstarter, co-founders Alexis Ucko and Quentin Perraudeau are already stunned by the campaign's early success and hope to keep the momentum going.

"We are delighted to have doubled our funding goal in less than 40 hours with a product that we developed for over a year,” says Alexis Ucko. “We still have a long road ahead but the fact that we can offer backers the opportunity to improve their posture is a reward in itself. We are truly excited!”

The Percko is made from high-quality breathable and thin fabric; it truly fits the wearer – it's comfortable yet supportive. Easily taken off and put on like any other shirt, it won't compress the body and can be washed like regular clothing. With the corrective benefits of The Percko, users can work more productively and sleep easier – stress and pain-free.

Using an advanced set of patented tensors, The Percko brings technology and expert experience for posture alignment. The tensors react to bad posture by exerting a painless pressure on the wearer's back to straighten their posture.

Having spent years researching and designing a prototype with partner companies, TopTex3 and Cogitobio as well as François Stevignon, Physiotherapist and osteopath, Percko can now make their dreams of entrepreneurship into reality. (SH)
