It is no secret that our long hours at offices have started to force back aches thanks to our slouching postures. While we can get better chairs, spend time visiting doctors, and try to be ‘better’, at the end of the day tiredness will take over and the posture will suffer. The bad posture then results in back aches, pains, and other such issues.
Lumoback have the answer. They have created a small belt that you can wear, which pairs with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. So far Android compatibility does not exist, but we hope they’ll add that soon. Once paired, the app actually monitors your posture in real time, and it knows whether you’re sitting, slouching, standing or even running!
If your posture is not correct, the app gives you feedback by vibrating gently, letting you correct your posture. This gentle reminder is enough to let you correct yourself, and before you know it, you have a healthier, better posture, and it can only mean a healthier back and body.
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.
