Today’s Get to Know is on posture. You have probably been told (or have told someone) to stand up taller or sit up straighter. LUMOback is a wearable device and iPhone application that tracks your posture and gives you a light buzz when you aren’t practicing good posture. Bad posture isn’t just for teenagers trying to be cool— habitual sitting in front of a computer at work can also lead to serious back issues. WebMD states that 80% of Americans have back pain at some point in their lives, and this device is trying to bring that percentage down.
LUMOback recently raised funding through the crowdfunding website, Kickstarter, and the sensor is currently available for pre-order.
