Poor posture has been a life-long plague, and when I heard about the Lumo Lift and saw the video describing how it works, I was hooked and bought one right away. No more back braces with straps that cut into your underarm - just a button to wear on a bra strap or some outer clothing.
I received the beautifully designed and simple to use article. I followed the directions to program it and immediately was rewarded with a slight buzz reminding me that I was slouching.
I sat up, but as I dove more deeply into what I was writing, I slouched more. Buzz...Buzz. The story carried me along, but I tried to respond to the reminder and sat up straighter. Soon I was slouching again. Buzz..Buzz..Buzz.
Walking away from my desk, towards the kitchen and water, I felt it again..Buzz..Buzz. I tucked in my buttocks, lifted my chin, took my water back to the desk, sat down. Buzz..Buzz...
I realized very quickly that I would prefer to ignore the buzz and not even think about how much it had cost me. It wasn't going to do what I needed to do. I would have to do on my own what I have been avoiding all my life: work on my posture consciously.
The buzz was just supplying one more thing to oppose. Even as I write this, I see the absurdity of my argument: the Lumo Lift does exactly what it says it does, and what it does is evidently not what I need to improve my posture. I might just as well have Sister Bridget hissing at me, as she did when I was in school, "Ethna, stand up straight. Put your shoulders back!"
I do love the Lumo Lift, its looks, and its function. I just wish I were more motivated to respond to its direction.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
