Petaluma, California (PRWEB) August 03, 2015
Workrite Ergonomics this week announced the addition of Lumo Bodytech’s Lift product to their already expansive offering of ergonomic products and solutions for the workplace.
Lumo Lift is a smart, connected posture coach and activity tracker, designed to motivate the wearer to sit tall and stand strong by providing discreet vibrations and real-time feedback when slouching. The Lift encourages the wearer to stay active by tracking steps, distance traveled and calories burned. It can be paired with iOS devices, select Android devices and Windows PCs so users can track their progress over time.
“We are excited about the Lift because it is the first connected, wearable device that addresses the crisis of poor posture. It fits perfectly with our focus on wellness and adds a whole new dimension to our ergonomic product solutions.” said Charles Lawrence, President at Workrite Ergonomics. “The foundation of good ergonomics is proper posture so Lift just naturally fits with what we do – helping people be healthier and more productive in the workplace. The really wonderful thing about what we do is that by helping people work healthier and improve productivity while in the office we are also enhancing their lives outside of the office.”
Lumo Lift is the first product that can objectively track posture on a large scale and is helping to provide deeper insight into posture behavior trends. In a recent study of their user data, Lumo Bodytech found that during an average workday people typically spend only 36% of their time in good posture. This translates to as much as 38 minutes of slouching per hour.
Lumo Lift was created after one of the founders of Lumo Bodytech, Andrew Chang, battled back pain for many years. “I was only able to find relief after a series of posture classes and I realized the significant impact that posture can have on back pain,” said Chang. “After that, we knew we were on to something big. The benefits of good posture go beyond improving physical health by reducing stress on the back, it can also boost confidence and enhance appearance.”
