LUMOBACK – Improve your posture and think straight in 2014
In this age of technology, everyone spends too much time sitting in front of the TV or at a computer screen. Slouching in an armchair or over a keyboard increases stress to the discs in the back and neck resulting in symptoms such as muscle pain, tension headaches and gastrointestinal issues to name a few.
The LUMOback uses a lightweight sensor and free app to track posture and movement. If the user slouches from their lower back, leans forward or backwards, or shifts weight to one side, the LUMOback will gently vibrate to remind them to sit or stand up straight. LUMOback uses real-time feedback and data visualisations to inspire improvements in posture that can have a significant impact on health.
The sleek, formfitting device uses an elasticated band to sit comfortably and discreetly around the lower back, under or over clothing. The app also tracks steps, calories burned, time standing, time sitting and the number of times users stand up each day. Additionally, the LUMOback app provides a daily ‘Posture Score’ so that progress can be monitored as posture is improved.
LUMOback is compatible with Apple iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, iPad (3rd and 4th gen), iPad Mini iPod touch (5th gen), Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4, Nexus 4 and 5, HTC One and Motorola G. Users can download the app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play. The LUMOback Smart Movement and Feedback System is available from the Apple Store or Amazon.co.uk.
