Repetitive Stress Injury

Repetitive stress injuries are becomming more and more common among computer scientists. Several of our faculty, staff, and students are either experiencing repetitive stress injuries themselves, or know someone with the problem. Repetitive stress injuries are easier to prevent than to cure, so we would like to present this information for your use.

If you are employed by the university, you can contact the Environmental Health and Safety office and request that they come inspect your workplace. They will make recommendations on how to set up your workspace so that it is more ergonomically correct. Contact:
