Founded in 2011, LUMO BodyTech uses smart sensors and software to help people improve their health. LUMOback, the company’s first product, is a wearable sensor and smartphone app for posture, which impacts back pain, fitness, confidence, and appearance. LUMO was founded by Stanford entrepreneurs Monisha Perkash, Dr. Charles Wang and Andrew Chang and is backed by Madrona Ventures, Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors, and Jerry Yang’s AME.
Our story begins with one of our co-founders, Andrew, and his quest to find a solution for his bad back. He would often feel frustrated and less productive when his back was giving him trouble. Andrew tried many different solutions but nothing worked, until he took posture classes that taught him how to sit, stand, and sleep properly. Learning better posture has transformed his life. Not only does he feel better, he looks great too.
Andrew’s experience was the inspiration behind LUMOback. We’re on a mission to bring good posture and movement back into our daily lives using the latest sensor and mobile technologies. In doing so, we hope to positively transform the lives of millions of other people too.
