We featured Lumo’s Lumoback device, which acts as a strap around your back, correcting your posture. They have gone a step further, this time making a small and nifty device, which can be clipped on to your shirt, and which gives you a gentle vibration every time a bad posture is detected. The device is being produced by a crowd funded campaign.
The device gives you a better appearance, and an activity tracker that provides a real time feedback on the users body position. It is designed as a small piece of jewellery, and can be both shown off, or worn invisibly, clasped on an undershirt, collar or bra strap. If the user slouches or closes off their body, the sensor provides a gentle vibration to remind them to keep shoulders back and head lifted.
The device is built on the world’s most sensitive, single sensor algorithmic model for detecting human motion in space, the Lumo Body Technology Platform. This technology enables the Lumo Lift to detect physical activity like steps and calories, and the wearer’s body position and movements.
“There is a massive and growing population of men and women who invest a great deal of time, money and care into making sure they look and feel their very best every day. These are the people who work out, eat well and take steps to further their personal and professional growth,” said Lumo BodyTech Co-Founder and CEO Monisha Perkash. “These big efforts matter, but small changes like pulling your shoulders back, engaging your core and lifting your head can make all the difference in how you present yourself to others. Lumo Lift is the only wearable device that can watch your upper body position and remind you to stand tall and move powerfully throughout the day. Over time this builds both muscle memory and confidence in Lumo Lift wearers.”
“Presenting your most attractive and powerful face to the world starts with how you hold your body,” said Lumo BodyTech Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer, psychiatrist Charles Wang, M.D. “But it doesn’t end there – how you look and feel depends largely on how you move, One of Lumo Lift’s most powerful features is that it issues real-time vibratory or mobile device feedback reminding wearers to stand up, move around or get into the power position. It also tracks activity trends over time, helping users set and achieve their movement goals.”
The device will be available in the UK in Q2 2014, and will be priced between £40-50. More details can be found at www.LumoBodyTech.com.
