All of us who spend a lot of time in front of a computer know what it means to have lower back pain at times. The reason we have this pain is quite simple: bad posture. But bad posture isn’t that easy to correct, right? We go on typing, focusing on our work and we forget that we have to maintain good posture to preserve our health. Along with the physical pain, bad posture increases our stress levels and erodes our confidence. Along comes Lumo Lift, our guardian gadget.
Lumo Lift is a small, magnetic device you wear, which tracks your posture and daily activity (number of steps, distance, calories burned). It’s best when it’s used along with the accompanying app, but it can be used without (BTW it wirelessly syncs with some Bluetooth 4.0 equipped iOS and Android* devices). The way it works is that you feel gentle vibration when your posture is bad, so you have a constant reminder to sit and stand properly… Kind of like your mom when you were little, but without all the yelling.
The device is very small (weighs 0.03 lbs) and discreet; you can wear it underneath your clothes or on them, as a fashion statement, but it has to be worn near the collarbone. It’s sweat resistant and has a rechargeable battery. It’s also good for exercising due to the aforementioned measuring of steps, distance and calories burned.
Now you might have really bad memories of mom and her yelling, so you don’t want to be reminded every single time you don’t have good posture. No problem there, you can set the vibrations to be instant or with a bigger time delay, so you won’t have PTSD symptoms. So set custom goals and walk (and sit) tall; your lower back will be thanking you in the years to come.
