Don’t Be A Slouch

May 9, 2012

Everyday, I start out sitting at my desk with near perfect posture. That very quickly deteriorates into a slouch, and by 4:00 I have slipped down so low in my chair, that my feet are under someone else’s desk.

Sound familiar? Guess what? There’s an app for that!

LUMOback is currently developing a flexible wireless sensor, that will monitor and measure the wearer’s posture. When the user slouches, it will send gentle vibrations to the small of the back, as a reminder to sit up straight. The sensors are connected to a mobile app that not only monitors the user’s posture, but also offers advice on back health.

The LUMOback app is still in development but expects to be ready to launch their Beta program soon.

Check out their website to be part of the trail.
