Before we send you on your way to great posture and better health, here are a few tips from our tip jar.
The Lumo Lift
Your Lumo Lift is a small, magnetic wearable device that tracks your posture and daily activity. For best results, wear your Lumo Lift on a snug fit shirt (or undershirt/bra) by clipping on the sensor using the magnetic clasp. The sensor should be worn right below your collarbone and close to your body for most accurate posture detection.

What is good posture?
Practicing good posture starts by understanding what good posture is. To get into good posture, imagine your head is being pulled straight up by a string. Lift your chest slightly and draw in your chin. To learn more about what good posture is and why it’s so important, click here.
Features of the Lumo Lift:
Align — Aligning your sensor is an important part of using your Lumo Lift because it tells the Lift what to look for throughout the day. Get into your best posture and double-press your sensor (similar to double clicking your mouse) to Align your Lift. You’ll receive three quick buzzes to let you know you’ve successfully Aligned your Lift. Great times to Align include: when you change clothes, after you have been moving around, or before you activate a coaching session.
Coach Vibrations — Coach Vibrations gives you vibrational feedback for your posture at a time delay that you set. Choose a short delay like 3 seconds for an intense posture training, or opt for a longer delay for posture reminders throughout the day. Turn this feature on and off by pressing and holding the sensor down for 3 seconds. Your Lumo Lift will respond by giving you 1 quick buzz when you turn it on and 2 quick buzzes when you turn it off.
Buzzes Decoded — We know it takes some time to learn all of the different buzzes of your Lumo Lift. Here’s a quick list of the different types of buzzes you might receive while wearing your Lift.
1 buzz: Coach Vibrations Turned On
2 buzzes: Coach Vibrations Turned Off
3 buzzes: Successfully Aligned your Lift
1 long buzz: Slouching while Coach Vibrations is enabled
While the features will be slightly more limited, the Lumo Lift can still be used without the application.
Coaching Sessions can be controlled directly through your sensor by holding down the button on your sensor for 3 seconds. Without the app, Coaching Sessions are defaulted to last only an hour, so you’ll still be able to practice good posture through the Lumo Lift whenever you want.
