We all know that good posture has many health benefits, but it can be hard to remember to stand upright without mom’s constant reminders. Luckily, Lumo BodyTech has created Lumo Lift, a tiny wearable sensor that will gently vibrate to prompt you to sit up straight. Unveiled yesterday in Las Vegas at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Lumo Lift is a small, yet stylish wearable device designed to help you achieve your fitness goals.
With a mission to eradicate poor posture, Lumo BodyTech has introduced the Lumo Lift as the new and improved model of last year’s LUMOback, a wearable belt that also vibrated each time you slouched. Unlike its bulky predecessor, the Lumo Lift is small enough to discreetly clip underneath your clothing and also doubles as an activity-tracking pedometer to count your steps and calories burned. In addition, the tiny magnetic device will detect the curvature at the top of your spine, rather than at the base, and will gently nag you into straightening up.
The Lumo Lift will also be accompanied by an iOS app that charts your posture and physical activity stats over time. Marketed as a fashionable accessory, the tiny device comes in a variety of colors. Introduced as a crowd funded project, the Lumo Lift is currently selling at $69–the early bird discount of $59 sold out in just one day–with an expected ship date sometime this spring.
