Charles Wang, MD, co-founder of Lumo Body Technology, joins us today to talk about LumoBack and Lumo Lift, the company's two anti-slouching (good posture-promoting) devices.  We will also explore Dr. Wang's journey from practicing physician to successful start-up entrepreneur.  Join us for a fun half-hour of standing tall.

BTW, for background here is a description of both devices from the LumoBodyTech website:

"Lumo Lift is a small sensor that you can clip anywhere on your chest and shoulders using an interchangeable magnetic clasp.It focuses on improving how you hold your chest, shoulders, and upper back in order to help you gain confidence, improve your appearance, and lead a healthier, more active life. When you want to buckle down and really focus on improving your posture and presence, enter a PowerUp session to receive gentle vibrations when you slouch. Based on your profile and behavior, Lift provides insights and actionable recommendations to help you improve. You’ll also earn badges and awards for being awesome! 

Lumo Back is worn on a belt around your lower back and focuses on improving lower back posture, which is linked to back pain. It vibrates when you slouch to remind you to sit straight and stand tall. Lumo Back is great at helping to encourage you to move more throughout your day by tracking the amount of time you spend sitting and standing each day, as well as the number of times you stand up. It also tracks the number of steps you take, the distance you walk and run, and the calories you burn each day."

Be sure to call in to ask Dr. Wang your posture questions.  We hope to talk to you online.
