Lumo knows when you sit straight.

San Francisco based LUMOback has created a posture sensor and mobile app to help users sit straight. Worn just above the waist, the sensor provides a gentle vibration when the user slouches to remind them to sit or stand straight.


The sensor also connects wirelessly to an iPhone or iPad app which tracks all of the user's movement data. Says LUMOback, "LUMO, your avatar, mirrors your activities when you sit, stand, walk, run, lay down, and more!"


"Posture is scientifically linked to back problems (which affects 80% of people sometime in their lives) and is also important for confidence, physical fitness, and general wellness. Using the latest sensor and mobile technologies, we can bring good posture and movement back into our daily lives." Via Techcrunch.
