Keyboard and Mouse Devices: Health Warning
Use of a keyboard or mouse may be linked to serious
injuries or disorders. As in many activities, when using
a computer you may experience occasional discomfort
in various parts of your body. However, do not ignore
symptoms such as persistent or recurring discomfort, pain,
throbbing, aching, tingling, numbness, burning sensation or
stiffness. Promptly see a qualified doctor, even if symptoms
occur when you are not working at your computer.
There is general consensus among researchers that
there may be many factors linked to the occurrence of
these symptoms, including overall health, stress, physical
condition and how a person positions and uses his or her
body during work and other activities (including the use of
a keyboard or mouse). The amount of time a person spends
performing an activity may also be a factor.
If you have questions about how your own lifestyle,
activities or physical condition may be related to these
symptoms, see a qualified health professional.
