The Lumbia device in use
Lumbia is a wearable device that helps assess and treat lower back pain
Lumbia looks quite a bit like a conventional back brace, although it contains a series of sensors and activators that make direct contact with key areas of the patient’s lumbar region
While lower back pain can have a variety of causes, poor posture is one of the most common culprits. Already there are a number of wearable devices available – such as the Lumoback and iPosture pendant – that detect when the user’s posture is improper, and alert them to the situation so they can correct it. The new Lumbia is one other product that performs this service, although it also provides data to therapists to assist in the treatment of back problems.
