Computers & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
by Unknown - 2/4/04 10:44 AM
This is getting so wide spread, I am wondering if we are doing something wrong? I am only on the computer a total of 90 minutes a day, 2 sessions of 45 minutes each, and as things are going I shall have to reduce even that.
During all my business years, 3 or 4 hours a day would be spent typing. Now 90 minutes on the computer causes problems. Could it also be the hassles on the telephones now? Push this - Push that.
I think computer desks have a typing shelf that is higher than the old typewriter desks had. For those of you who also use cell phones, hand held computers, and hand held games, there must be problems ahead.
Do any of you have any suggestions for using our computers in a fashion that will help alleviate the problem, which is also called "Light impact, repetative strain injury"?
Good grief. We don't want to stop using the forums?
