Best Practices for Wearing Your Lumo Lift

How to wear my Lumo Lift?

Lumo Lift should be worn directly below your collarbone. The larger sensor portion is worn underneath your shirt, while the magnetic clasp goes on the outside of a shirt or undershirt to hold your Lumo Lift in place. For most accurate results, Lumo Lift should be worn on a fitted shirt (or fitted clothing). Be sure to reset the Target Posture on your Lumo Lift each time you reposition it or change your clothing.

Step 1: Remove square magnetic clasp from Lumo Lift sensor.

Step 2: Place your Lumo Lift sensor against your body directly below your collarbone. Clip in place using magnetic clasp.

Step 3: Get into good posture, set your Target Posture by pressing and releasing your Lumo Lift once and you’re good to go!


What are the adhesives for and how should I use them?

Our custom, single-use adhesives are another great, hassle-free way to wear your Lumo Lift. They provide an alternative wearing option to the magnetic clasps. Perfect for those times when you prefer to discreetly wear your Lumo Lift under your clothes or when your shirt makes it difficult to place your sensor.

How to use the Adhesives?

Step 1: Peel one of the white, non-sticky sides off of the adhesive. It does not matter which side you peel off first.

Step 2: Place the sticky side of the adhesive directly to the bottom of your Lumo Lift. The bottom of your Lumo Lift has two gold charging dots.

Step 3: Now that you have successfully placed one side of the adhesive to the back of your Lumo Lift, peel the second white, non-sticky side off of the adhesive.

Step 4: Place this newly revealed sticky side to your skin. Place your Lumo Lift directly below your collarbone, about halfway between your neck and shoulder.

Step 5: Press once on your Lumo Lift to set your Target Posture. Your Target Posture is set once you feel three vibrations. Remember to set your Target Posture throughout the day as you change positions.

Step 6: For removal, gently peel your Lumo Lift off of your skin. The adhesive will stick to the back of your Lumo Lift as you do this.

Step 7: Peel the adhesive off of your Lumo Lift. Adhesives are for single-use only and cannot be used to reattach your Lumo Lift once you have removed it.

Quick Tips:

  1. When using the adhesives, we recommend alternating which side you wear your Lumo Lift on to prevent placing the adhesive in the same place daily.
  2. For best results, apply to clean, dry skin.
  3. Adhesives are single-use only. Using an adhesive more than once may result in loss of your Lumo Lift as they are not sticky enough to securely hold your Lumo Lift after they have been removed.
  4. You do not need to wear the magnetic clasp when you are using the adhesives. The magnetic clasps do not affect the functionality of your Lumo Lift.

How to Prevent and Correct Forward Head Posture

The human race has made some amazing technological strides in recent years. Think about it: how many intricate electronic devices do you use in the run of a day? Chances are you wake up to an alarm each morning on your smartphone, listen to music on a tiny mp3 player at the gym, and maybe check your email from a tablet during a coffee break. You might work in a cubicle in front of a computer, or at least a decent percentage of your work day probably involves looking at a computer screen. After work, perhaps you take a bus or subway home and spend the transit time looking down at your phone; sending texts, checking social media accounts, and online window shopping. Thanks to some very talented software engineers, we are able to document every minute of our lives and have the answers to all of our questions at our fingertips.

The Fundamental Importance of Good Posture

Guest post by Dr. Tim Errington, Chiropractor, Author, Speaker. He currently practices at Total Health Chiropractic, Singapore.

When most of us consider health and the things that keep us healthy, few will put posture anywhere near the top of the list. It remains probably the most underrated and underreported cause of failing health. This is indeed unfortunate because if you think about it, you have never seen anyone with poor posture radiating health and vitality. The harsh reality is there for anyone to see – lose your posture and you lose your health. All those years of our parents telling us to sit up straight and not slouch, was indeed very, very good advice.

The Photographer’s Secret to Being Photogenic

Very few of us are natural born models and know exactly what to do when come face to face with a camera. In fact, it takes a whole lot of self awareness and confidence to work your camera angles and score those million dollar shots consistently. If you’re one of these people, kudos to you!

For the rest of us though, more often than not, we’re deleting and untagging ourselves from unflattering photos that otherwise would have been a great picture — all because of that ill placed arm, uninvited double chin, or uncomplimentary posture (the list goes on).

Luckily, we’ve teamed up with up and coming SF based lifestyle and wedding photographer, Christine Sargologos, for a round-up of the best tips and advice for picture perfect poses for every part of your body.
