Lexington, MA (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with post-Kickstarter company, LUMOback to feature their posture correcting product.
The LUMOback sensor sits on someone's waist and vibrates when they slouch, gently reminding them to correct their posture. It continually measures the spinal position of the lower back and provides immediate feedback to help get into the habit of sitting straighter and standing taller. The Grommet sourced LUMOback through Kickstarter and is proud to feature this problem solving, innovative product.
Conceived by Monisha Perkash, Charles Wang and Andrew Chang, LUMOback tracks 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 progress and activity levels over time. The app has an avatar component that mirrors posture, so it’s easy to get a visual sense of how someone's 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 everyday life and help you learn to straighten up.
