In today’s society, repetitive strain injuries have become a part of everyday life for very many people using computers.
People need movement and variety and no workplace exists that is so well designed that we can sit still all day without risking repetitive strain injuries in the long term.
Symptoms of a repetitive strain injury can, for example, be numbness in the hands, stiffness and pain in fingers, forearm or elbow, shoulders, neck and back pain.
Incorrectly designed workplaces that lead to monotonous movements and long work shifts with the same movement pattern are examples of causes of possible repetitive strain injuries. No one deserves this. The user suffers discomfort and the employer has high costs because of sickness and rehabilitation.
