Video Game & Electronic Injury Prevention tips
The American Society of Hand Therapists (ASHT) offers the following tips
to prevent injuries while using portable electronics and video games:
|· Use a neutral grip when holding the device – keep the wrist fairly straight. |
· Take a break every hour or switch to another activity – avoid overuse of one muscle/tendon.
· When using a handheld device, put pillows in your lap & rest arms/elbows on pillows – to decrease arm and neck strain.
· Frequently focus on a distant object (look up & away) – to help reduce eye fatigue & strain.
