Recently Genomic RepairWife booked me a massage as a treat for my birthday and damn it was awesome. But while laying on the table, having Helga the masseuse use Randy MachoMan Savage atomic elbow drop-like movements on my shoulder blade area, I realized that science is killing my back. Working long hours hunched over at the bench like the diligent troll that I am has contributed to my poor posture and back strain. I have even contemplated getting one of those ugly back braces to straighten me up so that I don't pick up a Quasimodo style hunchback. While I do like swinging from ropes, I do not wish to become a anymore of a social pariah than I already am.
So dear reader, how do you handle ergonomics in science to preserve the body? For instance my PI, makes the trainees read papers for him and report back to him on them in detail, thus preventing the onset of eyestrain for him.
