Problem Posture? There’s an App for That!

by Hazel Chua

I remember a stage in my life where almost everyone around me constantly berated me for my bad posture. However, I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘bad’ – more like ‘comfortable.’ If you’re encountering a similar problem with your own posture or with someone you know, then you’ll be happy to know that technology is making it easier to sit properly with LUMO.


LUMO is basically a device that works with your smartphone to remind you to sit up straight and get rid of your slouch. The device itself is a small black contraption that you wear around your lower back, and vibrates whenever you’re getting a little too comfortable (read: slouchy) in your seat.


LUMO is meant to be worn on your lower back, where it does all the sensing and reminding.

It’s currently in production after a highly-successful Kickstarter campaign. No worries if you missed your chance to back the project, because you can now buy it off of their site for $149(USD).
