"Carpal Tunnel Syndrome"
Strong Evidence Has been emerged , that if a person uses Keyboard and mouse for more than 20-30 Hours per week then he may be a victim of carpal tunnel syndrome.
What is carpal tunnel syndrome ?carpal tunnel syndrome is the tingling, pain, numbness and other problems which occurs in our hand due to the pressure of median nerve in our hand.
When does the median nerve get pressured ?Our Median Nerve get pressured when we make the same hand movements over and over, especially if the wrist is bent down (your hands lower than your wrists), or making the same wrist movements over and over.
Stage 1: Due to the usage of same muscles again and again, Workplace Musculosketetal Disorders occurs leading to discomfortability in operating Mouse.
Stage 2 : We make exact movements with our fingers, hands and thumb. Time after time we are positioning the mouse, clicking it and scrolling with it and this can cause muscle fatigue.
Stage 3 : After Continual usage of computer for 2-3 months, you may experience aching and soreness as well as pain around your wrist and on the top of your hand. Your forearm and elbow may also be sore. This is due to the continuous stress on your hands and wrists.
