The LUMOback may pre­vent or re­duce back pain by teach­ing you the proper way to sit and stand. It uses a sen­sor at­tached to a belt that fits around your lower back. Af­ter you cal­i­brate the de­vice to your body geom­e­try, it de­ter­mines how your spine and pelvis should align while you sit and stand. If you slouch, gen­tle vi­bra­tions re­mind you to straighten up. It also con­nects wire­lessly to an iPhone or iPad app, which tracks how much time you spend sit­ting, stand­ing, walk­ing, and ly­ing down. LUMOback costs about $150 and is avail­able on­line.
