How To Wear Lumo Lift [Video]

It’s easy to wear Lift on all of your favorite outfits! Follow these simple instructions to wear Lift securely and track your posture accurately.

First, slide the square clasp off of the Lift sensor.

Second, place the Lift sensor (the larger oval piece) under your clothes, and use the magnetic square clasp to hold the sensor in place.  The Lift sensor should be worn about one inch below your collarbone.

Third, Align your Lift sensor by getting into your best posture then double pressing on the square magnetic clasp.  You will feel three quick confirmation buzzes to let you know that you’re all set.

Lumo Lift works best when worn on clothing that fits snugly. Women can wear Lift on a bra strap or camisole by using the included white strap clip – this comes in especially handy when wearing looser blouses! Simply place the Lift sensor behind your bra strap and hold it in place using the white strap clip.

Watch the video below for a quick recap of how to wear and Align your Lumo Lift.

    The little magnet fell out of the bra strap holder on my first day wearing it. The adhesive is sticky but the magnet doesn’t hold. Now what?

      So sorry that this happened to you! We had an issue with some of our early bra clips but have fixed the problem and can send you a new one right away!

        Same thing happened to me just taking it out of the box. The magnet doesn’t seem to fit well into the space allotted on the clip.

          Hi there,

          It sounds like you are trying to put one of the black or silver square clasps into the white plastic bra clip. The bra clip is already magnetic, so this is not necessary! They are meant to be used separately, depending on how you choose to wear your Lumo Lift

            Yes, I figured that out afterwards. I think it’s just confusing because they come put together in the packaging. Also, there’s not really much information about what all the parts are and what to do with all the magnets. (I imagine save them for later?) Thanks for the quick response!

            So true again. My wife returned hers because she couldn’t figure it out and I wasn’t much help because of the lack of instructions. I just found out what that strap clip is by reading this blog. The only think I could guess is it was part of the packaging! Now I’m off to try to find out how to use the step, distance & calorie tracking. I knew it was supposed to be part of the product but since it wasn’t mentioned anywhere I thought it was a feature not released yet…. But today I get a survey and it asked how I liked the step, distance and calorie tracking. Ditto for the Windows desktop app – I found out about it in the survey. Really, really poor customer education / instructions.

          My bra clip detached from the magnet, so I used just the little square and I was wearing the sensor at the top of my bra cup, just below the bra strap connection. The bra was padded so I guess the square magnet did not hold it well and I lost it. I was so disappointed as I loved the little guy! It was really helping me keep good posture. Bummer!

      My 12 year old niece recommended the lumo lift to me. I am wearing it using the bra strap clip, but it seems the clip is too narrow for my strap and I am concerned the Lumo Lift will fall off without my knowing – – which would be a costly error. Just a recommendation- might you consider creating a clip for strap widths wider than the teen-size strap in the demonstration image. There are oodles of women with larger bra straps (and corresponding poor posture) who would benefit. For now – I’m trusting your engineers this clip will work!

        Hi Janyne, thanks for reaching out and for the suggestion! At the moment, we only have one size for the bra clasps but I am happy to pass along your feedback and suggestion to our product team. As a side note, some of our customers have written in to let us know that doubling up on the magnets (so placing a square clasp on top of the white strap clasp) has worked well for them in terms of holding the Lumo Lift in place. Please give it a try if you’d like 🙂 Thanks!

          Good morning! I love my lumo lift and wore it consistently for mos – nearly eliminating thoracic back pain. But I consistently struggled with it staying attached to my bra strap. I use both magnets. So I tried the other recommendation – using the magnets to attach it to my shirt. Both magnets came off and are lost. The lumolift stayed inside my shirt. So now i have to figure out how to deal with no magnets. . . Bottom line – I love the lumo lift – I am greatly disappointed it is not more stable, given the investment.

    Hi Pearce,

    Did you try a Coaching Session? Lumo Lift only vibrates when you slouch while in a timed Coaching Session. Check out this blog post for more info: http://www.lumobodytech.com/2014/08/how-to-use-coaching-sessions/

    I just got my lift and was very puzzled by the little information provided in the box. I had to turn to the computer to find the answer to what is what, to how to turn it on, where to get the app or if there even is one, how to start it up and get it started. I still don’t know if I only get buzzes when I am actually in coach mode. At least add the webpage for the answers to all on that tiny little (pretty much worthless unless you know the answers) pamphlet. Nevertheless looking forward to trying it out now/

    Just got my Lumo Lift. So reading the blog, it seems it doesn’t work when moving and doesn’t work unless in a coaching session. Is that really so? I read where some are saying it is too sensitive. I am finding the opposite. It is hardly sensitive even with coaching session and sitting still. I have to go way out of alignment to get a vibration….. and often none at all. Sometimes a twist will bring it on but not a slouch. And I have it with a button down shirt near my collar bone. I am disappointed but maybe my unit is defective.

      Hi Jack,

      Lumo Lift tracks your activity while you are moving, and tracks your posture all day, even if you aren’t in a Coaching Session. However, you only receive vibration feedback while in a Coaching Session. Is your Lumo Lift properly Aligned? If you still aren’t receiving vibrations, please try shutting down your app by double-pressing the home button of your iPhone and swiping up on the Lumo Lift app, then restarting the app.

      • LeslieHowells

          24.09.2014

          Hi Leslie,
          No, not at all! You just need to be in a Coaching Session to receive vibration feedback. Otherwise, your data will just sync the next time you open your app. You can activate a Coaching Session directly from your sensor by long-pressing the button on your sensor.

    I just received my Lumo Lift and am confused about the uses of each of the 5 parts received. One is the charger with the long cord for charging the sensor. Second is the oval Lumo Lift sessor itself. The next three items each contain a magnet. Two of these are small square items with magnets. The fifth is a piece of plastic of about 1 inch by 3/4 inch and it includes a magnet. Are all three of these magnet items just alternate means of attaching the sensor itself to your clothing? Confused Herb Henderson

      Hi Herb,

      Sorry for the confusion! The black and silver square magnets can be used interchangeably to attach Lumo Lift to your clothing. The white plastic piece allows Lumo Lift to be worn securely on thin bra and camisole straps.

      Hope this helps!

          Hi Adria, we’ve updated the app from the time this video was made, and the coach feature of the Lumo Lift has since evolved to be slightly different. Currently, you can customize the delay of your coach vibrations to anywhere between 3 seconds (immediate feedback) to 10 minute (reminder), and once you turn on Coach Vibrations either through the app or directly through the sensor, it will remain turned on until explicitly turned off. Hope this helps. Cheers

    Hi JD – yes, it’s as simple as putting the Lumo Lift sensor behind your shirt and attaching it with a magnetic clasp on the outside!

    Lumo Back is our original product and is worn as an elastic belt around your waist. It focuses on lower back posture. Lumo Lift addresses shoulder and upper back slouching and is a smaller, more versatile form factor.

    Hope that helps!

    The little magnet in the bra strap holder fell out for me too. Tried putting in back but the adhesive is no longer sticky enough to hold it. Already lost the black and silver clasps since they usually fall out when I take my back pack off and on. With neither bra straps nor clasps, nowI can’t even wear the lumo anymore!

    I wear my lumo lift either on a t-shirt or under a collar in a regular shirt. I am not happy with either because there is so much variance as to exact placement on the shirt and the tightness or looseness of the shirt. You need to come up with some kind of strap a man can where to keep the lumo close to the body.

    • Ellie Kulick

      Hey Steve, thanks for reaching out. So sorry to hear that you’re not happy with the Lumo Lift! Unfortunately we don’t have a strap solution for men at this time, but one suggestion we give customers is to wear the Lumo Lift higher up on the collarbone on looser shirts so that it has a better chance of staying snug to your body. As long as you calibrate the device by Aligning, the Lumo Lift will still be able to provide posture feedback for your posture.

      Let us know if you have any more questions!

      Thanks,

I’ve gone through the videos but it does not work quite well,; I feel the buzzes when I set it and then I keep it pressed till it buzzes once so I have the couch settings, but afterwards I do’nt receive any feedback when I am blending or launching, neither it keeps the records .

    I received my LumoLift and placed it on my cami strap about 1 inch under my collarbone. I also experimented by placing it on my bra strap as well as the outside of my tight fitting shirt as well as with trying the strap clip and the magnet clasp. I tried three different positions. Sitting on the couch, sitting in a hard kitchen chair and standing upright. I calibrated the device by clicking it twice and it buzzed 3 times. I then turned the coaching mode on by holding the device until it buzzed again. As other users have mentioned, I had to intentionally on all 3 occasions exaggeratedly slouch over for the device to vibrate. At that point, I’m pretty sure if I weren’t wearing the LumoLift, I would realize on my own initiative that I would be slouching. I find this really disappointing because I had very high hopes for this nice little invention. Maybe I’m placing it in the wrong spot? Please help. I’d love for this product to work!

    • Ellie Kulick

      Hey Michelle thanks for reaching out! It sounds like perhaps you have your Coach Vibrations time delay setting too high that you aren’t receiving any vibrations. Please try adjusting this through the app under Coach to a shorter delay like 3 seconds — you should feel more frequent vibrations then.

      The way the Coach Vibrations time delay works is that it requires the sensor to detect that specified time period of consecutive slouching (if you set it for 2 minutes, you will need to slouch for 2 minutes straight) to receive a vibration. For this reason, if the time delay is set to too high, an exaggerated slouch for a couple of seconds may never trigger a vibration.

      Additionally, please be sure to frequently Align your Lumo Lift while in good posture. This will teach the Lumo Lift what posture to compare against, and will increase accuracy of slouch detection. Hope this helps!

      Hi Hank, thanks for reaching out. The Lumo Lift is sweat proof so this should not be an issue. The athletic tape is a great alternative to the magnetic clasps, as loose shirts do indeed interfere with accuracy of your Lumo Lift. If the tape is a god alternative for you, please continue to use the Lumo Lift this way for best results. Hope this helps, thanks so much! Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Is it just me who found by wearing the bra strap, it’s very hard to calibrate the Lumo Lift? There seems to be a gap when using the bra strap as it doesn’t have the black/silver magnet clasp to directly touch the square in the middle to push the sensor anymore. Do you have any other suggestion or am I using it wrong?

    You answered the question about wider bra straps not holding the Lumo Lift in place with “Some of our customers have written in to let us know that doubling up on the magnets (so placing a square clasp on top of the white strap clasp) has worked well for them in terms of holding the Lumo Lift in place. Please give it a try if you’d like.” I tried it, and IT WORKS! Thank you so much for answering the question. I usually wear loosely fitting shirts, and the Lumo Lift wasn’t registering correctly because of the clothing movement. Now my posture is much better. Thank you again for the tip. By the way, my husband and I saw the Lumo Lift discussed on the CBS program “The Mo You Know”. My husband said, “You need that!” I’m very pleased with the Lumo Lift.

    I love using the LumoLift everyday until the magnet detached from the bra clasp & I misplaced it before I got a chance to try to glue it back. I could not find a way to buy another bra clasp or any way to email. I left a comment somewhere on the site with my email address but never received a response. So the LumoLift has been sitting in a drawer.
