A Meter to Keep Back Pain at Bay

Back pain is a leading cause of missed work days, according to LUMOback CEO Monisha Perkash. With that in mind, she and her team created a $149 wearable sensor that vibrates when a user is slouching. The accompanying mobile app aggregates data over time, calculates a posture score, and records sitting and standing-up time. --Laura Montini
