Quantified back pain with LUMOback
A new digital health device, LUMOback, monitors your posture and coaches you to improve throughout the day. That’s right! It’s the quantified self for your back.
The LUMOback is a device worn underneath or over clothes, on the back, with a sensor checking to see if you slouch. If you do slouch, which is bad mm’kay, it will gently vibrate to tell you so.
This is all of course tracked through a smartphone app, so over time you can see your improvement in posture and hopefully be able to compare it to other tracked data to see health improve overall.
While at first it seems like a niche device, most office workers should be taking more care about their seating position. So maybe try it out? Find out more on their website.
