Lit Fest delves into what we fear, how we relate in extremis

The Metal Badge of Courage

This the second part of a two-part column about the back-straightening technology called the Lumo Lift. Pt. 1 appeared in the Sept. 4 issue of The Reader.

After a couple weeks wearing the Lumo Lift, my impression is the technology is (probably) worth the price of admission for chronic slouchers such as myself who want nothing more than a reminder to stand up straight.
