Computer Related Injuries (CRI) & Plans for Healthy Computing

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 32   |   Comments: 0

Computer is a vital tool in many different occupations; however long periods of working at a computer can increase the chance of developing an injury. Although sitting requires less muscular effort, it still causes fatigue because of reduced circulation to Muscles, Bones, Tendons and Ligaments and can result in Stiffness and Pain.

Incorrect working positions like Irregular Spinal Postures for extended periods of time; sitting continuously, Poor Ergonomics, Stress, Physical Inertia, Air-conditioned environment etc are the causes for Computer Related Injuries (CRI).

Optimize your performance and prevent Computer-Related Injuries (CRI) with Healthy Computing. If CRI is not early intervened it leads to permanent or chronic disability like:


*          Myo-Fascial Pain Syndrome                     *          Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

*          Carpal Tunnel Syndrome                         *          Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

To maintain Health and reduce your risk of developing Musculo Skeletal Disorders, place yourself in GOOD WORKING POSITIONS.

Do the following to maintain Neutral Body Postures--Comfortable working posture in which your Joints are naturally aligned--while working on the Computers-

  • Hands, Wrists, and Forearms are straight, in-line and roughly parallel to the floor.
  • Head is level, or bent slightly Forward, Forward facing, and balanced.
  • Shoulders are relaxed and upper arms hang normally at the side of the body.
  • Elbows stay in close to the body and are bent between 90 and 120 degrees.
  • Feet are fully supported by floor or foot rest.
  • Back is fully supported with lumbar support when sitting vertical or leaning back slightly.
  • Thighs and hips are supported by a well-padded seat and generally parallel to the floor.
  • Knees are about the same height as the hips with the feet slightly forward.

Working in the same posture or sitting still for prolonged periods is not healthy. You should change your working position frequently throughout the day in the following ways:

  • Make small adjustments to your chair or backrest.
  • Stretch your fingers, hands, arms etc.
  • Periodically, stand up and walk around for a few minutes.
