Working on the computer for extended durations continues to increase and although awareness of ergonomics is improving, people are continually exposed to ergonomic hazards and the risk for injury while working on the computer in an office environment still remains. Without proper consideration of ergonomics the likelihood of pain and discomfort will remain along with the risk for risk for musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) increased. Not only is the proper workstation layout and design crucial, so too is the awareness of people using the workstation, equipment and tools. New challenges are also arising because of the convenience of the laptop computer, tablet, and other portable devices. Each of these do not place the user in ideal working postures and further increase the risk for fatigue, pain, discomfort and injury.
