Hack Your Fitness: Lumo Run Helps Improve Your Running Form And Push Harder

Anthony Karcz |May 23, 2017 |

The funny thing about runners is that we all think we have fine form until we snap an IT band or strain a tendon. And even then, we blame it on “going too fast” or “pushing too hard” rather than on poor run mechanics.

Julia Malacoff | Febuary 18, 2017 |

Ever wonder how your form is looking during a run? It’s pretty hard to correct unless you have a coach running with you, but that’s essentially what Lumo has created with their new device.

Dean Stattmann | January 10, 2017 |

Lumo entered the wearable game before wearables were cool, debuting the Lumo Lift as a novel way to help people improve their posture. The tiny device, worn on the torso, was able to sense when its wearer began to slouch, administering a light vibration as a reminder to stand tall.

Anna Maxted | December 26, 2016 |

Like many people who work at a desk, my posture is terrible. As the hours tick by, I slump forward like a wilted daisy, but the trouble is I don’t realise it until I uncurl myself, painfully, at the end of the day.

In the absence of my mother standing over me barking ‘Sit up straight!’, it’s hard not to slouch.

Which is where new posture-correcting app Lumo Lift (you slouch, it vibrates) comes in.

Meet The Lumo Runnning Coach

Askmen | October 25, 2016 |

I am definitely not a very athletic person, however, I do enjoy cardio sports like swimming, biking and running. Things I can do alone, in nature, and not encounter anyone I know in the process.

This Clip on Wearable Wants to Be Your Running Coach

Active | October 19, 2016 | Kolby Paxton

To the rescue comes Lumo Run, a Bluetooth-enabled sensor that clips onto the back of your pants and pairs with your phone. The app collects data over the first 10 minutes of your first run, learning your tendencies, speed and the overall quality of your form.

From there, your virtual running coach is on the job, monitoring your form and grading you across five metrics: cadence (steps per minute), braking (the amount of forward resistance caused by each foot strike), bounce (the distance, up-and-down, that your hips move), along with your pelvic drop and rotation.

Accelerometers and gyroscopes inside can then determine how the runner’s pelvis is moving through space. That data can be used to determine your running biomechanics, and with coaching, teach you “how to be efficient,” Shultz says, “and how to reduce your risk of injury.”

Lumo targets the center of your body, the pelvis and hips the area that is the driving engine of running.
