Posture Alert is one of the most popular features of the Lumo Lift. When enabled through the Lift app, your Lumo Lift will alert you through 5 quick buzzes when you’ve been slouching for a period of time that you choose (1 min to 30 min). You can also customize how much of the day you want this feature to be enabled. This is a great way to maintain overall good posture throughout the day without committing to a Coaching Session.
To enable Posture Alert: from the main screen of the Lumo Lift app, press Menu in the top left corner. Select Posture Alert from the menu. Flip the switch that says Enable Posture Alert.
The Coaching Session function of the Lumo Lift is a timed session of instant vibratory feedback. You will receive buzzes as soon as you slouch to let you know that you’ve deviated away from what you Aligned as good posture. You can customize the length of your sessions and type of vibration you want to receive in your Lift app under Menu, on the top left corner of the main app screen. The different session length options are 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 hour and 4 hours. These sessions can be activated and ended directly from your sensor by long-pressing the sensor for 3 seconds. The Lumo Lift will vibrate once when you’ve successfully entered a Coaching Session and will vibrate twice when the session ends.
Note: The Coaching Session will automatically end when the session times out. To end the session before the allotted time, long-press your sensor for 3 seconds.
Your Lumo Lift will only give you vibratory feedback for your posture when you are either in a Coaching Session or have Posture Alert enabled. If neither of these features are turned on, your Lumo Lift will not vibrate to alert you of bad posture.
The main difference between a Coaching Session and Posture Alert is the time it takes to receive vibratory feedback. In a Coaching Session, you will receive buzzes as soon as you slouch to let you know that you’ve deviated away from what you Aligned as good posture. It’s best to think of this as active good posture training. Additionally, Coaching Sessions are timed and will automatically turn off when the session time has run out.
When Posture Alert is enabled, you will receive 5 buzzes whenever you’ve been slouching for a selected period of time (1min to 30 min). All of this is customizable in Posture Alert under Menu in your Lift app. You can customize Posture Alert to stay on all day or just a portion of the day. Posture Alert is a great way to maintain overall good posture throughout the day when you don’t want to commit to a Coaching Session.
