Dear all,


We work very hard on our computers, often (always!) for hours at a time.


Repetitive motion injuries and overuse injuries are unfortunately a very real fact of using a computer, a keyboard, and a mouse for long hours at a time.


I just stumbled upon this great website, which offers some wonderful information as well as some very helpful basic freeware (you can purchase the full version, which has more options, for a few US$).


Visit this site:

Hopefully it will help us avoid increasingly crippling pains.


I\'m one of those who\'s hands have become extremely sensitive (at age 37!), and I suffer *too often* from crippling pain.


I hope that this can help avoid other translators from ending up with the same problem...


Please take care of yourself, and take care of your health icon_smile.gif

TGIF!!!


Nathalie


P.s. (Edited message): There is also this other excellent website, which gives you more details about Cumulative Trauma Disorders, how to avoid it (or find relief) and other related freeware:

Thanks! Aug 26, 2002

Thanks for your concern!


I agree that is very important to take care of ourselves. I suffered recently from tendinitis and I know what it means to be in pain.

Nathalie,


I found a more cute \"pauseme\" programme which you may like since you use this kind of software.
