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

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


ergonomic devices designed to prevent repetitive strain injury.


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


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


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


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


through a reasonable range of movements. As we are increasingly


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


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


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


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


comfortably and not taking train brakes. Tablets and smart phones


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Chartered Society of physiotherapists suggest that


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


from work. It is no surprise repetitive strain injury is


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


diagnose repetitive strain injury initially. The tablets and things


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


could equally present themselves with any brand of Talbott, are


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


periscapular pain. The postural issues are similar to those posed


by tablets for phones. Manufacturers realise we need to be


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


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


devices are closely monitored before they make it into the hands


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


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