First, a single unit without mechanical parts, or reliances on additional parts or comprised of multiple pieces. Second, a solution that offers the least amount of burden to transport, taking the least amount of space in baggage or pockets. Third, be easy to use, yet elevate the users view to increase comfort and spinal health.
VuWing started; in concept, in 2017. Since then a few variants have been conceived and evaluated. When prototyping began in 2018, it became apparent that the vision should be based on one simple concept. Easy. Previous models included hinges, magnets or multiple sections with a clamp. When it came down to the final concept, the “Flex” design was the most versatile and flat out… easy. We hope you enjoy the VuWing, we have enjoyed bringing it to you.
