  • Computerized workplace are the source of MSD

  • It develops chronic pain if their workstations are set up without proper attention to ergonomics

  • A small change, such as re-positioning the screen or keyboard, or using an adjustable chair, can often eliminate the problem.


Ergonomics for children in the field of computer usage

  • Mainly, MSD is themain problem duetocomputerusage

    • Itresults in chronicpainandirregularity in thedevelopment of childs’ skeletalsystemduetothelongworkinghoursandawkwardpostures.


One size fits all
