Many factors may contribute to musculoskeletal disorders. It is important to pay close attention to proper work station set-up. Pay close attention to hand and wrist postures and comfort when using the products and take frequent rest breaks or rotate tasks to avoid over intensive use. It also is important to consider the effects of non-computer related activities, and individual factors that may be affecting one’s health.
If you experience discomfort, pain or other symptoms like weakness, numbness, tingling or swelling, either while using your Goldtouch products, or at other times, do not ignore these signs. Don’t assume or hope they will go away. Consult a qualified health professional. Many minor musculoskeletal disorders can be effectively treated at an early stage before they progress to more long-term injuries.
