The Lumo Lift sensor and clasp

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.


The Lumo Lift uses sophisticated angle displacement as a measure to tell when you are in and out of good posture. This means that as great as the Lumo Lift is at coaching you on your posture, you have to teach it what good posture looks like on you first so that it has a baseline posture to compare against.

Just as you would before getting on a weight scale, the Lumo Lift needs to be calibrated before use to get accurate feedback on your posture. We call this Aligning, and you can do this on your Lumo Lift by getting into your best posture and then double pressing the Lumo Lift against your body.

The 4 C's

1. Collarbone

Make sure to wear your Lumo Lift about 1/2″-1″ below your collarbone, mid-way between the tip of your shoulder and your neck. This is where you’ll see best results for accurate posture detection.

2. Clothing

Wear your Lumo Lift solely with snug-fitting clothes, as loose clothing causes inaccurate readings of your posture (as Lift tracks your garment instead of your body). If this isn’t an option, opt to wear your Lumo Lift on undergarments using the white strap clip, or place your Lumo Lift higher above your collarbone where there is less movement of the garment.

3. Calibration

Wherever you end up wearing your Lumo Lift, the most important part about your Lift routine is its frequent calibration — or alignment as we call it. The Lumo Lift uses angle displacement as the main measure of posture, so it requires re-calibration of the device, similar to a weight scale.

Align when you change clothing, first thing in the morning when you sit in your office chair, align when you switch chairs, etc. Simply get into your best posture, then firmly and rapidly double-click your Lumo Lift against your body. 3 short buzzes – you’re aligned.

4. Coach

You must have Coach Vibrations (the main feature of Lumo Lift) turned on to receive vibrational feedback about your posture. Coach Vibrations is a customizable feature of the Lumo Lift where you can set the time delay of posture feedback to anywhere between immediate to 10 minutes depending on your needs and wants.

During the first few weeks of operation, we recommend setting the time delay to 3, 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds to really kickstart your habit change for improving your posture.
