MetadataShow full item record
During the last two decades, computer use in the workplace has increased dramatically. Along with the increase in the productivity, the presence of computer in the workplace leads to changes in the workplace organizations and to emergence of new risk factors, thus causing many health problems such as upper extremity work-related musculoskeletal disorders (UE-WMSD) among computer users. The prevention of UE-WMSD, which frequency increases continuously, is possible with applying proper body mechanics and providing an ergonomic workplace. An approach that encloses the employer's support and the active employee participation will increase the success of these programs.
