"Recommended. This program presents a helpful overview of the ill effects brought on by improper computer use and poor workplace design, and techniques to prevent injuries. It is especially recommended as an introduction for those who are unfamiliar with the harmful effects brought on by these ubiquitous machines." -EMRO Review
This program educates viewers about the potential harm of using computers and other information technologies. There is a particular emphasis on the use of computer PCs and laptops, and the physical and mental stresses that can result from long periods of poor sitting posture. A "computer nerd" character, Caveboy, demonstrates how not to use computers, and how not to set up one's study area or workstation, and explores the proper use of computers with the assistance of various experts: Physiotherapist, Nigel Rose, addresses Occupational Overuse Syndrome and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome; Consultant, Mark Dohrmann, assesses the values of ergonomics; Optometrist, Jenny Maddox, discusses the typical symptoms of eye-strain; Psychologist, Les Posen, looks at problem/addiction or habit disorder through overuse of computers. Overall, we learn the physical, social and mental consequences of poor posture, injury, Internet obsession, and anti-social behavior, should not be underestimated.
