How Does RSI Occur?

Repetitive strain injuries are fairly common in many professions, especially ones which require sitting and working on a computer for long periods of time.

How to Avoid RSI – Repetitive Strain Injury

It is beneficial to invest in and use a wrist rest. As a general rule, the palms of the hands should be parallel to the keyboard, but most keyboards are not designed this way. A wrist rest works by flattening out the hands and providing support. Moving hands crab-like over a keyboard will increase the risk of an injury.

Having a chair in the right position is also a key aspect of preventing a repetitive strain injury. Many people do not keep their chairs at the recommended height.

The forearms should be horizontal to the keyboard, so adjust the chair as needed. Many of the ergonomic chairs popular today offer a variety of adjustable options to meet each person’s individual needs. Add or remove cushions and padding. Arm rests do not play a role in repetitive stress injuries, so this is not an area of concern when choosing a desk chair.

Picking the right keyboard is also important. Ergonomic keyboards help to head off any pain and while taking some adjustment time, can help to prevent injuries. If this is not preferred, make sure to use a keyboard that isn’t stiff and doesn’t require pounding to type.

Always have the keyboard on an adjustable tray to ensure proper positioning of hands and forearms. A trackball mouse also produces less strain on the wrists and arms than a traditional mouse and this is a good tool that can be changed in both an office and home computer system.

Avoid long periods of work. While there’s often a fair amount of pressure to finish a job, any pain or discomfort is a sign to stop. Take regular breaks throughout the day and shake the hands and wrists to release tension. For anyone who spends most of their day at a computer, taking regular breaks is the key to preventing repetitive stress injuries.

Vary the pace throughout the day. When possible, schedule a day so that no more than an hour or two is spent at a desk. Schedule in meetings and other tasks to break up computer time for the best results. This may mean segmenting a workday into several periods, but maintaining this habit over time is a good way to avoid a stress injury. This habit also tends to boost productivity so don’t feel too bad about changing up a routine.
