Lumo Lift is a small device (also known as a Lift Sensor), you wear right below your collar bone, under your shirt, with the help of a magnetic clasp on your shirt to keep the sensor in place. Please see more on how to wear you sensor, here. You can use the sensor to track your daily activity and to improve your posture.
The Lumo Lift Sensor works with a free iOS and Android app (available for compatible mobile devices) to allow you to view your progress and gain valuable insight about your posture and activity. The sensor also provides posture feedback vibrations at a time delay that you can customize through the Lumo Lift app. The Lumo Lift sensor cannot be used without the Lumo Lift app. The app is required to complete the set-up of the sensor for your use.
The Lumo Lift sensor measures and displays the following information in the Lumo Lift app:
- Steps - Number of steps taken
- Distance - Distance covered in miles, as calculated by the number of steps taken)
- Calorie Burn (active and passive) - The calories you see on the app are estimate calories, which takes into account your BMR (Basal metabolic rate), which is calculated by using your gender, weight, height, and age. These calories burned can be considered as "Living Calories" or the calories we burn from purely existing. We then add the calories burned from walking and running, to calculate the total calories burned in a day.
- Good Posture Minutes - The app will display a “good posture minute” for every minute you remain in good posture with the Lumo Lift sensor. Good posture is determined by adherence to your set Target Posture. Read more about how to set your Target Posture in our article, How to set Target Posture
The Lumo Lift app also displays your history, where you can view your historical posture and step data day over day and monitor your progress over time.
Please note: The Lumo Lift only provides vibrational coaching feedback on posture while in stationary positions, such as sitting and standing. The Lumo Lift does not buzz or provide posture feedback while in movement, during activities such as walking, running, or driving.
Can I use Lumo Lift with a Pacemaker?
Precaution: The Lift Sensor works along with a magnetic clasp, by design. Magnets may cause electromagnetic interference when used in close proximity with sensitive devices such as Pacemakers. Please consult your physician prior to using the Lumo Lift sensor in close proximity to any such device. If you have any further questions or clarification, please contact us on email@example.com or submit a request here.
Is the Lumo Lift waterproof?
The Lumo Lift is not waterproof, so please do not submerge your Lumo Lift in water or put it in a washing machine. We also do not recommend wearing Lumo Lift during your workouts, as excessive sweat may damage the sensor. If your lift has been subject to a water damage, please submit a request here.
