28th February, RSI Awareness Day

Today is RSI Awareness Day!

This international awareness event takes place on the 28th February each year to actively raise awareness of painful and often debilitating injuries. We help 100's of employees every year suffering with hand, wrist, arm and shoulder injuries, the vast majority would have been prevented with better working standards and practices. Doing your DSE Assessment professionally and regularly will reduce the risks associated with the duties associated with computer work.

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a general term used to describe the pain felt in muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse.

It's also called work-related upper limb disorder or non-specific upper limb pain.

The condition mostly affects parts of the upper body, such as the forearm, elbow, wrist, hands, neck and shoulders. If left untreated often result in surgical intervention. The symptoms can vary, but often include:

  • pain or tenderness
  • stiffness
  • tingling or numbness
  • cramp

We have some of the very best ergonomic mice, keyboards, document holders as well as a host of innovative products to help with recovery from – or prevention from the onset of – RSI within your workplace. A specialist assessment with the employee at their workplace is the only way to ensure the correct solutions are provided.

Book your  assessment today for the very best advice and solutions.
