2 1212  RSI in 3 stages  Ergonomics  Posture  Prevention  What is RSI?  Diagnose, Symptoms  Direct causes  Indirect causes (risk factors) Subjects

3 1212 RSIRepetitive Strain Injury  Repetitive=repeated  Strain =too much tension  Injury =damage The RSI syndrome is a collective name for complaints from overstraining as a result of repeated work

4 1212 Diagnose RSI?  Most common(80%) is a painful  hand, arm, shoulder and neck  A medical diagnose in only %  Tennis elbow, golf elbow  Inflammation of tendon or tendon sheath  Carpal tunnel syndrome

5 1212 Symptoms/Complaints  Local cramp and tiredness  Pain: nagging or sharp can radiate  Tingling (paraesthesia)  Loss of control and strength  Stiffness  Dysfunctions and restrictions

6 1212 Neck 20 % Elbow 6 % Shoulder 19% Wrist/hand/fingers 11% (Dutch Labour Inspection examined in 1997, 2000 civil servants.)

7 1212 Direct causes  Static load: continuous (over)straining of the muscles in neck, shoulder, arms and fingers  Dynamic load: Repeated movements in combination with extreme postures

8 1212 Indirect causes (Risk factors) 5 W ’s  Working times (duration)  Work pressure (deadlines, stress)  Work place (furniture, equipment)  Work method(visual aspects, instructions)  Work tasks (organising tasks)

9 1212 Causes may lead to  Nerve damage as a result of pressure  Straining of muscles and tendons

10 1212 RSI complaints in 3 stages:  Light to very serious  Temporary to permanent  While working to lasting after work

11 1212 Phase 1: Rookie  Pain during work or after extensive work  Complaints are local  Clear relation between work and pain  Phase 1 can last for years

12 1212 Phase 2: Experienced  Pain radiates  Pain and tiredness do not disappear entirely after work  Work can become restricted  Complaints occur during normal daily activities

13 1212 Phase 3: “Die hards”  Continuous pain even at night  Pain can transfer to other limbs  Work can become impossible  Injury can become permanent  Even light activities can be very painful

14 1212 Conclusion…  The problem is real  ”THE SOLUTION” doesn’t exist  Prevention is better than curing  Variation in activities  Awareness of (physical) stress  Balance in the 5W’s

15 1212 The 5 W’s  Working times (duration)  Work pressure (deadlines, stress)  Work place (furniture, equipment)  Work method(visual aspects, instructions)  Work tasks (organising tasks)

16 1212 Workplace, Posture and Method Ergonomics Ergon = work Nomos = rule, law “Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning ” Albert Einstein

17 1212 Average people do not exist, neither does the average workplace People are  Short or tall  Thin or thick

18 Chair 2.Desk 3.Monitor 4.Visual aspects 5.Posture 6.Keyboard 7.Mouse

19 Chair  Seat (height, depth)  Back (support)  Armrests (height, width)

20 Desk  Depth  Height  Legroom: stretch, turn  Desktop: thickness

21 Monitor  Top of screen at eye height  Distance cm  Settings:  font size  colour, contrast, brightness  refresh rate ≥ 70 Hz

22 Visual aspects

23 Posture  Straight back  Relaxed  Right in front of your monitor  NOT twisted or turned at your desk

24 Keyboard  As flat as possible  Wrists relaxed and straight  Right in front of you  No wrist support

25 Mouse  Motion speed  Large movements  Double click speed  Large (or no) mouse pad (NO wrist support)  Fingers relaxed  Shortcut keys

26 1212 The ‘ideal’ work place 1.Chair 2.Desk 3.Monitor 4.Visual aspects 5.Posture 6.Keyboard 7.Mouse
