A Must Read for Computer Users

hey guys!

just wanna ask a question.

how often do you stay in front of the computer in a day?

3 hours? 6 hours? or more?

i guess nowadays most people spend their time in front of the computer longer than anything else. it is either for work, school assignments, entertainments or non other than blogging.

this article is dedicated to every computer user out there, especially bloggers. ^ ^

____Be Careful While Using Your PC____

Have you ever heard of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)?

If you never heard of it please give attention on what i'm going to say. Cos it's something you SHOULD know.

For everyone who always work daily on a computer, the misuse of mouse and keyboard will result in CTS. Scientifically, CTS is a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, leading to paresthesias, numbness and muscle weakness in the hand. The diagnosis of CTS is often misapplied to patients who have activity-related arm pain.

Let's take a look at the CTS surgery.
(i'm sorry if it scares you)

this is a real human hand. looks fake isn't it? bcos of the pale look i know. it is due to the blood barrier. which means the blood flow has stopped.

this is the swollen fibrous tissue that functions as a support for the joint. it needs to be removed cos it causes numbness of the thumb, index and the middle finger.

the surgical parts are sealed after the swollen tissue being taken away. i know it's gross.

so in order to prevent CTS, here are some steps you can take note.

Correct Ways To Work On The Computer

besides that, you can do some hand exercises to prevent CTS.

lastly i hope every computer user (especially computer geeks =P) are aware of this syndrome and be careful while using your computers.

~God bless you all~
