Repetitive strain injuries are no laughing matter. At best you feel a constant pain whenever you are moving your arm or wrist in a certain way, and at worst the pain is severe and the repetitive strain injury becomes a chronic condition, which can require surgery.
There are certain gadgets that you can use in order prevent these work injuries.
What gadgets can be used to reduce the chance of a repetitive strain injury?
There are quite a few different gadgets that can be used in order to reduce the chance of a work injury. One such item is called CtrlWORK efficiency. This is not so much a gadget but a piece of software which teaches its users shortcut keys which not only makes work easier but also helps reduce the risk of repetitive strain injury.
How does this reduce the chance of such a work injury?
By making workers use shortcut keys it is reducing the amount of mouse work needed. This reduces repetitive use and movement thus reducing the chance of repetitive strain injury. CtrlWORK software also offers workers simple exercises they can do to help combat fatigue and stretch the muscles thus helping prevent a work injury.
Making use of all the features of the CtrlWORK software can benefit employees greatly whilst potentially reducing the amount of accident at work claims. This will make workers not only less prone to work injuries but should improve levels of concentration.
