Carpal tunnel syndrome picture
A common form of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) produced by repeating the same small
movements many times. As more and more people use computers, carpal tunnel syndrome and
other forms of RSI have become more prevalent. Typical symptoms are numbness or burning in
the fingers or wrist. If not addressed early on, the injury can cause permanent damage.
There are a number of ways to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome, including adjusting the
height and angle of your chair and keyboard, and taking frequent breaks from typing.
Modern office furniture, designed especially for computer use, can help considerably.
