Repetitive strain injury

Repetitive strain injury, sometimes also called repetitive stress injury or typing injury, is a tendon and nerve disorder that occurs when a person makes too many of the same motions over a long period of time. It is most common among workers on assembly lines and with those who do a large amount of typing or using the computer mouse extensively. In either case, the chances of developing the disorder are lessened by good posture and ergonomic working conditions.
