assesses the damage that mobile tech could be doing to our bodies

:00:43.:00:49.

and we give you some tips on how to avoid it. It is not a golf buggy,

:00:49.:00:54.

it is a new electric car. We Checkout the smart vehicle that can

I just the sight for you in Webscape. Welcome to Click. I am

:01:08.:01:13.

Spencer Kelly. Every time my osteopath told me into and performs

:01:14.:01:18.

a move that looks like she is about to tee ah mac head from my

:01:18.:01:21.

shoulders, she reminds me that sitting at a desk and using a

:01:21.:01:26.

keyboard and mouse is bad for your body. You may have seen me using

:01:26.:01:30.

ergonomic devices designed to prevent repetitive strain injury.

:01:30.:01:37.

Have you stopped to wonder if your mobile devices are any better for

:01:37.:01:43.

you? Lara Lewington looks at whether there are any ways to enjoy

:01:43.:01:49.

tech without the twinges. Back in the days when we all read books and

:01:49.:01:53.

newspapers and played music on the wireless, our bodies were put

:01:53.:01:57.

through a reasonable range of movements. As we are increasingly

:01:57.:02:03.

using tablets and smart phones for, well, pretty much everything, we're

:02:03.:02:07.

spending a lot of time both typing and brooding on them and using a

:02:07.:02:14.

few specific actions many times. -- and reading. There are a number of

:02:14.:02:18.

issues to do with sitting at a computer for too long, not sitting

:02:18.:02:23.

comfortably and not taking train brakes. Tablets and smart phones

:02:23.:02:28.

have not been as long for so long. -- taking screen breaks. We have to

:02:28.:02:35.

get to grips with how to enjoy them comfortably. Using these devices

:02:35.:02:40.

puts our muscles and joints at a mechanical disadvantage. We work

:02:40.:02:47.

harder, expend more energy. People describe a range of problems. These

:02:47.:02:52.

range from pain and ageing through to tingling, pins and needles,

:02:52.:02:57.

numbness, swelling, headaches. There is a range of things. The

:02:57.:03:07.

head, neck, shoulders, hands and wrists. Of recent survey by the

:03:07.:03:08.

Chartered Society of physiotherapists suggest that

:03:08.:03:14.

people spend a further 2.5 hours on mobile devices after getting home

:03:14.:03:19.

from work. It is no surprise repetitive strain injury is

:03:19.:03:25.

becoming a bigger issue. Hands are a very complex system of tendons

:03:25.:03:31.

and pulleys. They become inflamed and thickened. You can end up with

:03:31.:03:36.

carpal tunnel, tendons running up and down the wrists and the nerves

:03:36.:03:41.

get trapped. Patients wake up in the middle of the night with

:03:41.:03:48.

tingling in their fingers, shaking their hands. It is what we call the

:03:48.:03:55.

property. There is no instant treatment for it. -- neuropathy.

:03:55.:04:00.

has been a few years since the concept of BlackBerry thumb emerged.

:04:00.:04:04.

It is a condition triggered by repetitive use of the thumb with

:04:04.:04:10.

little involvement of other fingers. For some, like Mandy Saunders, the

:04:10.:04:15.

consequences have been serious. was surprised that, just by using

:04:15.:04:20.

my phone, I ended up in a position where I had surgery and was in a

:04:20.:04:26.

cast for six weeks afterwards. I went to see the doctor and they did

:04:26.:04:31.

diagnose repetitive strain injury initially. The tablets and things

:04:31.:04:37.

that they gave me bird not working, they sent me for physiotherapy and

:04:37.:04:41.

the physiotherapist said, straight away, that it was more serious than

:04:41.:04:46.

a bit of medium physiotherapy and they thought I had done some proper

:04:46.:04:52.

damage. After more investigation and an MRI scan, the tendon in my

:04:52.:04:58.

thumb had snapped. I was using my time on the train commuting in and

:04:58.:05:03.

out of London for sending e-mails. I had been given this gadget that I

:05:03.:05:07.

thought was brilliant. You don't realise that something that you

:05:07.:05:13.

thought was such a gift can actually end up being a curse.

:05:13.:05:18.

conditions like these so-called iPad shoulder or iPad hand, which

:05:18.:05:24.

could equally present themselves with any brand of Talbott, are

:05:24.:05:33.

issues. The I. -- these devices are not heavy but if you hold them for

:05:33.:05:39.

long enough, you can feel the strain. IPad shoulder is because it

:05:39.:05:45.

is a hand-held device. For maximum visualisation, we tend to sit up

:05:45.:05:51.

with the pad down at waist level. It is not the right way to do it.

:05:51.:05:56.

It is not the shoulder that is affected, it is the neck. The neck

:05:56.:06:01.

becomes really flexed. It pulls on the now at the top of the shoulder

:06:01.:06:07.

and redevelop this terrible aching pain. It is what we call

:06:07.:06:12.

periscapular pain. The postural issues are similar to those posed

:06:12.:06:17.

by tablets for phones. Manufacturers realise we need to be

:06:17.:06:23.

careful. Anyone who actually reads the manual has been warned. After

:06:23.:06:29.

Raul, expected usage is not put down to chance. The ergonomics of

:06:29.:06:33.

devices are closely monitored before they make it into the hands

:06:33.:06:39.

of consumers. And I think people probably did expect sums to be used.

:06:39.:06:44.

I do not think they realised how extensively they would be used. --

:06:44.:06:49.

thumbs. We are not used to using them to intensively. You end up

:06:49.:06:55.

with a crooked angle. If you are stretching them across the screen,

:06:55.:07:00.

it is quite unnatural and they are over-used. If you love to text or

:07:00.:07:06.

use your phone, you thumb is constantly in movement. Using

eyes because the blink rate goes right down. People will not blink

:07:23.:07:29.

very frequently and the eye can dry quite severely. If this is not

enough to put you off, experts advise taking reasonable breaks and

Apple's newest product is very small. A compact version of the

getting to your destination on time can be a pain, especially in a big

I have used it as an excuse. One San Francisco start-up has

not force developers to release across all platforms simultaneously,

:17:18.:17:25.

but you can keep track of when they arrive. It is annoying, what your

friends are talking about the latest up, but as a Windows user it

is not available to you. Hopefully developers will bring it across
