One small mix-up could be the difference between receiving life-saving medicine and losing your arm. The solution? Simply, a piece of plastic. But more generally, ergonomics: the practice of designing the work to fit the worker.

In this episode, we talk to Karen Giuliano (associate professor of nursing and executive director of Healthcare Innovation & EntreprenNURSEship) and Jack Dennerlein (professor of Physical Therapy, Movement & Rehabilitation Sciences).

Litmus is produced and reported by News@Northeastern reporters Emily Arntsen and Aria Bracci. This episode was written and hosted by Emily Arntsen with mixing by Anthony Pulido. Edited by David Filipov.
