Lumoback is the first posture sensor and mobile application to support healthy backs. Strapping it around your waist, its posture sensor will gently vibrates when you slouch from your lower back, reminding you to sit or stand straight. It is compatible to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad via Bluetooth – download the app and connect it and it will track your movements wirelessly and gives you feedback. Priced at $149.
LUMOback is highly sensitive at measuring lower back spinal posture. In most cases, poor lower back posture such as slouching, leads to poor neck and upper back posture. By correcting lower back posture, LUMOback will help correct many cases of poor neck and upper back posture. However, there are cases in which poor neck and upper back posture occur in isolation without abnormal lower back posture. Future products from LUMO BodyTech will address these less common cases. With a single sensor solution, the lower back location addresses the majority but not all cases of poor spinal posture.
