Ergonomics is the applied science of designing and developing equipment, workstation layout and work strategies to best suit and protect the human body. The goal of ergonomics is to minimize fatigue, discomfort, injury and emotional stress.

It’s important to recognize that even the most ergonomically correct environment will not prevent repetitive stress injuries if the body is simply overworked. The body has limitations with what it can withstand. Surpassing those limitations will most definitely result in injury.

FREE Postural Exercise Reminder Software

I highly recommend this program for many of us computer users. The software reminds us to take regular breaks (15min, 30min, 45min or 1hr) while at the computer and to help us be wary of our posture.

As a general rule you must stretch against stiffness but not against pain. If the stretch causes pain you are stretching too far or too hard.
