LUMOback

Maker - Monisha Perkash

LUMOback

Maker Story

Stand Tall

Sometimes a little nagging is a good thing. The LUMOback sensor sits on your waist and vibrates when you slouch, gently reminding you to correct your posture. It continually measures the spinal position of your lower back and provides immediate feedback to help you get into the habit of sitting straighter and standing taller.

Conceived by Monisha Perkash, Charles Wang and Andrew Chang, LUMOback tracks your movements wirelessly and sends data to an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad device. The small, flexible sensor works in conjunction with the LUMOback app, which keeps track of your progress and activity levels over time. The app has an avatar component that mirrors your posture, so it’s easy to get a visual sense of how you’re sitting, standing, walking and sleeping.

The idea for LUMOback started with Andrew, who was plagued by a bad back and wound up taking classes that taught him how to sit, stand, and sleep properly. Andrew’s efforts to learn better posture inspired the trio of Stanford graduates to create LUMOback using the latest sensor and mobile technologies. It’s an easy, automated way to bring a posture coach into your everyday life and help you learn to straighten up.
