At the end of the workday, you uncurl yourself from your seat in front of your computer screen and you find your shoulder and back hurts, and there is a nagging pain in your hands. This could be the result of poor ergonomics and the way you work.
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker. When there is a mismatch between the physical requirements of the job and the physical capacity of the worker, Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS) can result. Occupational Overuse Syndrome, also known as Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI), is a collective term for a range of conditions characterised by discomfort or persistent pain in muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Some common conditions are backaches, stiff necks and shoulders and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Ergonomics is a way to solve a host of physical problems brought about by over-exertion or repetitive stress.
