Sit better and stand taller. Good posture starts with the lower back, and that’s our focus with the LUMOback sensor and mobile app. Worn around the waist, the thin sensor band gently vibrates when you slouch from your lower back, and it catches some of your upper back slouching too! The sensor connects wirelessly to a mobile app with a friendly avatar named LUMO who tracks your posture and activities in real time, mirroring your daily activities.
Anyone can use LUMOback. It’s simple and integrates into your daily routine. Live your life. Only better.
We watch your back
The LUMOback sensor sends gentle vibrations when you slouch backwards with your lower back, reminding you to sit or stand up straight.
Using the latest Bluetooth technology, LUMOback tracks your movements wirelessly and gives you feedback through an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad app.
LUMOback is sleek, soft and comfortable so you can wear it everywhere you go. The sensor is 8.5mm thin.
At the technological forefront.
The interactive app tracks your progress and helps you improve over time. LUMOback is compatible with iPhone 5, 4S, new iPod touch (5th gen), or new iPad (3rd & 4th gen).
Let LUMO become your movement buddy. LUMO mirrors your daily activities, when you sit, stand, walk, run, lay down, and more!Less
I'm recovering from a herniated disc in the back and constantly have lower back issues. I've been using LUMOback for a week and so far I love it. I'm constantly aware of bad posture and correcting for it. I'm noticing now that I'm sitting up straight and standing tall subconsciously. I think that's the point. I've noticed a slight improvement in my lower back pain. I suppose a week isn't long enough to notice a substantial improvement, but it definitely feels better. Just a quick note: The first few days were a bit strange. My co-workers were constantly laughing at me adjusting my posture and trying to get comfortable. But by two or three, it was all good! I highly recommend this product for anyone who has back pain and wants to improve their posture.
Reason(s) for not recommending: Unable to try it - No Android support and I have an older iPhone and iPod, which was incompatible.
I was excited for LUMOback, as I have terrible posture and wanted something to help me improve my body's form. LUMOback seemed like a great idea - alerting me when I'm slouching and tracking my posture in realtime. After I received the package in the mail, I first proceeded to charge the sensor. After a couple of hours, I tried to turn it on, but couldn't figure out how. I'm one of those people who don't like reading manuals. So, after a while, I decided to look at the Getting Started guide and talking with their support, I realized I couldn't use the LUMOback by itself. It had to be activated first through an iOS device. I'm an Android user, so I lucked out. Although, I had old iPhone and old iPod touch laying around, they were unfortunately too old and incompatible with the app. I had hopes that the LUMOback could be used without an iOS device, but that didn't work out. They don't have Android support at the moment, which is the primary reason I wouldn't recommend the LUMOback. So if you're a non-iOS user, wait until they support more devices, otherwise I'm sure the LUMOback would be a cool device for correcting your posture.
This product is amazing in how it detects your posture. Helps to keep your back straight and improve your osteo health ! Easy to use, link, turn on and charge. I highly recommend this product to anyone needing a "coach" for back related issues!
