LUMOback: The Smart Posture Sensor [video]

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, bringing good posture and movement back into our daily lives is a possibility.

Meet LUMOback, a wireless posture sensor and mobile app that utilises great design, proven science, and the latest advances in mobile computing.

The sensor provides a gentle vibration when you slouch to remind you to sit or stand straight. It is worn on your lower back and designed to be slim, sleek and so comfortable that you barely feel it when you have it on.

The sensor connects wirelessly to an iPhone 4S or new iPad app which tracks all of your movement data. LUMO, your avatar, mirrors your activities when you sit, stand, walk, run, lay down, and more.
