Lumo Back does the following:
You can re-calibrate the sensor at anytime directly from the app by using the press & hold to CALIBRATION function.
To re-calibrate the sensor:
The data gained from re-calibration is used by the sensor to mark what is a good, neutral sitting or standing position for the individual wearing it.
The black, dime-sized, indented circular button on the face of the sensor acts as a capacitive touch button that can touched to manually turn on and off the sensor.
The sensor must be held horizontally (so if you are looking at the sensor it should be wide, flat, and showing the logo facing up) in order for the button to turn the sensor on or off. This condition is a preventative measure so the sensor is not accidentally turned off or on when the user leans up against something soft, such as a couch or car seat that could potentially press the button.
You can turn the sensor ON by holding the on/off button for at least 1-2 secs until the LED light on the bottom of the sensor (next to the USB port) flashes green and sensor vibrates once.
You can turn the sensor OFF by holding the on/off button for at least 1-2 secs until the LED light flashes red and the sensor vibrates twice.
You can determine if the sensor is currently on by tapping the on/off button and seeing if the LED flashes green.

The Lumo Back sensor is lightweight and held in place with a thin band and is worn discreetly around your waist or lower back. The Lumo Back sensor should sit just above your hip bones for best accuracy, with the sensor portion sitting on your back. To keep it in place, make sure the strap is snug, but not tight.
Yes. Lumo Back is highly sensitive at measuring lower back spinal posture. In most cases, poor lower back posture leads to poor neck and upper back posture. By correcting lower back posture, Lumo Back will help correct total back posture. With a single sensor solution, Lumo Back addresses many but not all cases of poor spinal posture.
The Connect & Calibrate section allows you to connect and reconnect to your sensor. This section also allows you to calibrate your sensor to your body and behaviors.
